Dr. Lindsay Farrell is a much loved member of our Christ’s Pieces community, and a celebrated artist to boot! Over many years, Lindsay has been melding his affinity for the practice of pilgrimage with the Stations of the Cross, helping us see the way of Christ in familiar locations. So, we’re excited to promote Lindsay’s series, the Noosa Camino. Visit the site, check out his 2017 David Binns Memorial Lecture “Walking the Way of St. Francis: A Spiritual Pilgrimage“, and walk the path as you draw near to God through art and nature.
Here’s the introductory blurb from http://www.noosacamino.com/.
“Camino” or “the way” is a Spanish word that describes a pilgrim-walking route. The images and reflections on this website were developed while walking in the Noosa National Park. They relate to the Camino traditions and Christian Spirituality. The paintings of places in the park become places for reflection and allude to a pilgrim-walk, reflection and the Christian story. Noosa Camino acknowledges the stories of the people who walked this place for millennia and pays respect to elders past and present. The Noosa Camino website is a not-for-profit project that seeks to encourage individual and community adventure, reflection and discovery as people walk “the way”.
Noosa Camino takes between 3 and 4 hours and is some 9 km of easy-to-moderate walking. You will need walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, water and insect repellant. Follow the National Park advice signs throughout the park. You may like to download and print the map and directions to the 14 reflection sites as the phone reception on the Camino can be limited.
