I grew up in a Free Church tradition. I attended a Baptist Church at home and when I went to university I found the SCM-affiliated Methodist Society, and through it St Paul’s Methodist Church where I was later baptised. Despite that, this year will be my sixth participating in Student Cross, a seven-day walking pilgrimage. Over Holy Week. To Walsingham. Carrying a life-size cross. It's pretty cliché Catholic. So, what keeps me coming back despite the fact that it’s so outside my own tradition, and involves blisters, sleep deprivation, lack of showers and all?
