Welcome to From The Pilgrim Path,
a podcast brought to you by Samuel S. Thorp.
This podcast has two different kinds of episodes: Sermons and Conversations.
Samuel S. Thorp is an Anglican Priest in the Church of England and has had a long habit of maintaining an archive of the text of his sermons on his website samuelsthorp.co.uk
Here you will find those same sermons in audio form. Some of these will be recordings made at the time of preaching while others have since been re-recorded for this podcast.
Initially these episodes will be uploaded frequently while the archive is brought up to date, thereafter they will be uploaded as and when Samuel preaches.
As someone who has long identified with the image of the ranger from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, this podcast, and the email newsletter of the same name, is born out of a sense that we are all on a pilgrim journey through life.
Much as the companions on their pilgrimage to Canterbury shared stories with one another the hope is that Samuel will be able to have conversations with a variety of differnet people with their own perspectives on life in order to prompt people listening to reflect more deeply on the spiritual aspects of their lives.
This endeavor will ultimately only be as successful as the impact it has on you, dear Listener. The hope is that by offering this podcast you might be be encouraged to grow in your faith – or to consider the possibility of faith – so that by journeying through life with God, you might become the person whom God is calling you to be. After all, his perspective of our potential is both far more honest than we might want and equally far more optimistic than we can imagine.
He has told you, O mortal, what is good;Michah 6:8
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
