On February 17, we will begin the season of Lent, a 40 day period (not counting the Sundays) centered around repentance and reflection as we prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the joy of Easter. As part of our congregational observance of Lent, we invite you to walk with us to Jerusalem! “Walk to Jerusalem” is a multi-generational journey through Lent that encourages members of all ages to increase their physical activity, spiritual growth, and cultural awareness through an imagined walk to Jerusalem. The total distance from Chapel Hill to Jerusalem is 6,112 miles, and we will be collecting and tracking our miles from Ash Wednesday (February 17) to Easter Sunday (April 4) to help us reach our destination. A ‘mile’ is 20 minutes of any form of continued spiritual, physical, or volunteer activity, so there are many ways you can contribute mileage to the total. A weekly Lenten devotional will also be provided to encourage you on the journey.
If you would like to join us on the walk, please sign up here! More information will be emailed once you sign up.
