Dr. Brett Webb-Mitchell is a pilgrim, speaker, writer, teacher, ordained Presbyterian pastor, parent, partner, and pet lover.
In 1999 he came out as a gay man and it was a pilgrimage that enabled him to be honest with himself.
Currently, Brett is a pastor serving St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Portland, Oregon, having been on the faculty of Duke University and North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina.
He is the author of ten books and three on pilgrimage. His latest is Practicing Pilgrimage: On Being and Becoming God's Pilgrim People.
Brett directs the School of the Pilgrim taking people on pilgrimage around the world and in their backyards.
We discuss pilgrimage as spiritual awakening, liberation, and protest.
