Plug in the Headphones… and Walk

  11 May '20   |  Posted by: Birlinn

A potent reminder that journeying with all kinds of people is often the best thing we ever get the chance to do

Ricky Ross, Deacon Blue

Reach for the headphones… and let your mind wander free down the Camino de Santiago.

Whether you need some armchair escape or you’re planning your next adventure, this is something you need to hear. Richard Frazer has recorded himself reading from sections of his book, Travels with a Stick and you can find them by clicking here, on the Greyfriars Kirk website. This is a book that captivates from beginning to end to the extent that your feet hurt as you walk the road alongside him. Richard’s delivery and pace is as might be expected – pitch perfect.

Richard Frazer is minister of Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh. He founded and chairs the Grassmarket Community Project, which helps vulnerable people. He has also been influential in the revival of pilgrimage in Scotland and in the Church od Scotland’s decision officially to promote and revive pilgrimage after 450 years.
