DREW’S PILGRIMAGE PREPARATION!
The Camino De SantiagoThis October 2016 (right after his 1st grandchild is born) Drew will be heading out on The Camino De Santiago. For well over a thousand years, millions of pilgrims have walked The Way of St James - the most popular route being almost 800KM's. (Beginning in France, over the Pyrenees Mountains, across Northern Spain to the Atlantic) And just to make things interesting, Drew will be doing the entire trail in a vow of silence. Along The Way he’ll be writing about his experiences interacting with other pilgrims, without being able to speak, and posting on The Drew Marshall Show Facebook Page. The plan is to finish the Camino on his 50th birthday on November 30th. Every Saturday in July (the last month of Season 13) Drew will be interviewing a variety of “Camino Gurus” in order to prepare for his upcoming “bucket list” experience.
TODAY’S CAMINO GURU #1 - Dr. George Greenia
Founder of the Institute for Pilgrimage Studies; Professor Emeritus of Hispanic Studies, Honorary Knight of Spain
George Greenia did his undergraduate work at Marquette University and PhD at the University of Michigan. He is a specialist in the languages, literatures and linguistics of medieval Spain and teaches courses on Spanish Language, Epic and Nationalism, Hispanic Folktales, and Love and Prostitution in Medieval Spain (not a how-to course!). He is co-founder of the Wm & Mary Program in Medieval and Renaissance Studies and founder of the Wm & Mary Institute for Pilgrimage Studies. His interest in world pilgrimage spans many times, territories and traditions and he is an authority on the legendary Camino de Santiago in northern Spain where he has trekked over 4,000 miles, half on bicycle, half on foot.
TODAY’S CAMINO GURU #2 - Dr. Arthur Boers
Author of The Way is Made by Walking: A Pilgrimage Along the Camino de Santiago
Pilgrimage is a spiritual discipline not many consider. Aren't the destinations far? Don't they involve a lot of time and walking? Not too long ago, Arthur Boers wasn't thinking about pilgrimage either. But he began to sense a deep call from God to walk the five-hundred-mile pilgrimage route known as Camino de Santiago, ending in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, at a cathedral that is said to hold the relics of the apostle James. In these pages he opens to us his incredible story of renewed spirituality springing from an old, old path walked by millions before him. It's a story of learning to pray in new ways, embracing simplicity, forming community, living each day centered and focused, depending on God to provide. Joined by hundreds of others from all over the world, Boers points the way to deeper intimacy with God--a way made by walking in faith. *Dr. Boers was Associate Professor and RJ Bernardo Family Chair of Leadership at Tyndale University College & Seminary.
Best Of TDMS Journey ReplayWithout question, TDMS Journey segments have been the most popular with our listeners over the last 13 years. Throughout the last month of Season 13, Drew will replay some of the most powerful personal stories of overcomers you will ever hear.
Marcella Cross (Originally Aired April 23, 2011)
We originally spoke with Marcella back in April 2006. She had been dealing with Multiple Sclerosis as it slowly began to steal away her mobility. Today’s interview was five years later, with Marcella’s physical condition much worse, we’ll find out how she’s been getting along with God – or not. *Just before Drew went to air on March 7th 2015 show, he was told that this former guest / turned friend had just died. MS finally took Marcella at the age of 38. Since the first time Drew met Marcella, especially during these last few years of his “public doubt”, she was a pebble under his soul. Over time, her body slowly trapped and betrayed her and Drew was in complete awe of her unwavering dedication to the God who didn't answer her hope or prayers to be healed. Drew was honoured to have been asked by the family to lead the funeral service. Marcella was tenacious grace! This was reflected best in her poetry, which can be found at www.endured.com
Drew & His Mates Crack Open A Few! — Extended Summer EditionListen in as Drew and his guests crack open a few! Crawling from topic to topic - current affairs, pop culture, even touchy-feely-relational stuff.Got a topic you want the gang from the pub to crack open? CLICK HERE
1/ Drew first met his two Pub Crawl panellists today in kindergarten. Andy & Larry were the cool guys who always stood out because they were twins. Drew - well Drew was the village idiot who wanted to be like Andy & Larry. Drew & the twins have kept in touch throughout the years and as it happens - one of them is an atheist and one of them is a believer. Today we’ve asked them to share their vastly different spiritual journeys.
