Pilgrims and Strangers

We have in our Western culture forgotten to be pilgrims and strangers because we have become so attracted to this world and to the things of the world that we have lost sight of the world to come…We have for the most part found life in the world to be very comfortable, so much so that we prefer not to leave it.

-Herman Hanko, from his “A Pilgrim’s Manual – commentary on 1 Peter, p.xx-xxi
