Stepping out with Noah!

What on earth is this you may well be asking? Well, it is one of the practical outcomes of my walking the Thames Path during my recent sabbatical which I found to be be stimulating, thought provoking, reflective, fun and inspirational.

I am wanting to both further explore and to offer a contemplative, intentional, reflective way of walking with one another in which we might know and experience God together.

Why this title? Well Noah is one of only three people in the Old Testament, described as walking with God (can you name other two?) and as the Methodist Church already has a programme entitled walking with Micah, which is about social justice, I didn't want to confuse issues by calling my initiative, Walking with Noah!

I am planning to begin this in October and it will take the form of a walk of around 3-4 miles or so where in conversation, laughter and the silence of our own thoughts, we seek to be attentive to God as we walk together in the beauty of his created world. There will be opportunities to join me for just a part of the walk thereby making it shorter and hopefully more inclusive.

It is my intention that there will be two walks a month, which will take up either a morning or afternoon with the dates and routes given in advance. To begin with, the walks will be local to Wantage/Grove but those further afield within the Circuit will also be explored as time goes on.

More details will be available within the next two-three weeks – but in the meantime the dates for October and November are
Tuesday 11th October at 10:00am
Wednesday 19th October at 2:00pm
Tuesday 8th November at 10:00am
Thursday 24th November at 10:00am

Do let me know if you are interested in joining me or if you have any questions or queries.
