As our theme this year is “Walking the Path of Lent with Friends,” our Friday blog posts focus on the “walking” part of the Lenten journey. For many, Lent means giving up something or going with less, ignoring the physical walk Jesus takes during Lent towards the cross.
Each week, we will share a unique form of contemplative “walking” to walk alongside Jesus to help you transform this Lent and beyond.
Week #1: The Challenge Walk
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now [are ye] light in the Lord: walk as children of light. Ephesians 5:8, KJV
Commit to walking every day in Lent, just like Jesus did. While Jesus walked around 90 miles during Lent from Nazareth to Jerusalem, walk as far as you are able. It could be in your home or apartment or meet up with a friend to walk your neighborhood.
As the weather improves here in New England, I hope to track my walking in nature during Lent after a long winter of snow and ice. I may just reach the 90 miles before Easter.
Wherever you go or how far you walk, be sure to remember to walk as a child of the light.
