For centuries, God's people have been sojourners,
Pilgrims journeying through place and time to seek a deeper connection with the divine.
Time and again God calls:
Out of familiar lands and off of sandy shores.
Out of suburban sprawls and cityscapes
Into a way of love grounded in honoring the dignity of every human being.
Asking us to co-create a world where each person can live into the fullness of who they are created to be.
This summer we continue the journey not to a far off destination, but to our own backyards.
To Pittsfield, Sheffield, North Adams....Chicago, Baltimore or wherever we find ourselves.
Because God with us is always as close as our next breath or our next door neighbor.
And so we set out:
To see our communities from a place different from the one in which we now stand.
To hear stories of others journeys and honor their lived experience
To touch the beauty and fragility that lie in every human heart.
To know ourselves and each one we meet as beloved.
We walk, traveling through our communities, knowing God is already there.
Our journey begins with a single step.
9,999 more will follow each day.
As we learn what it means to pray with our feet.
Here on this page, you will find inspiration for your journey.
