Join us on a virtual walk to Jerusalem

Here’s how it works:

The Walk to Jerusalem is an imaginary walk where we record our journey through Lent, tracking how we exercise our body, mind, and spirit.  The walk starts on Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018 and ends on Easter!   You can join the walk at any time. 

We welcome everyone and anyone to join us for this “walk” – a journey that encourages mindfulness throughout Lent, as we move towards the remembrance of Holy Week when Jesus walked to Jerusalem for the events that were about to unfold.

From St. Philip’s to the empty tomb in Jerusalem, the distance is 9,313 km:  walking over land 5,682 km and over the Atlantic for 3,631 km.  That’s a lot of ground to cover – so the more we have joining us for this journey, the closer we will get!

To walk with us, just tell us how far you have travelled.  So, keep track of your exercise:  physical, spiritual, and mind.  Fill out a form and submit it each week, or as often as you like.  We’ll log the distance and keep you up to date on our progress.  We’ll provide you with some devotional material for the journey, log sheets, and a guide to calculate your distance.  All this is available at the church or here on our website.  Start the journey now!
