Prayer Walks

The purpose of Prayer Walks is to give time for meditation and reflection and they have been part of the Christian tradition for many centuries. Walks can be done alone or in groups and can take a number of forms. The most familiar will probably be a pilgrimage but any time spent seeking escape from the everyday pressures of life in walking has to be good. As you walk you can spend dedicated time in prayerful consideration of all that surrounds you, your life, your family and friends, your community and the wider world. Within the environment in which you walk there will be a multitude of stimuli to provide focus – the beauty of the world, great architecture, the joys and challenges of life, and so on.      See full story...

This is a story retold by the Rev Dr Robert Reiss, Canon Treasurer of Westminster Abbey until his retirement, in his book Sceptical Christianity.      See full story...

It’s Traditional !

As children, we were never aware what the trigger was but every year, at the beginning of Lent, skipping ropes would be the essential piece of equipment for all of us. Individual ropes abounded, but so too did long heavier ropes that would stretch across the street. Of course, traffic was not a problem then; few families had a car, so the only motorised traffic we saw on our street was the electric milk float (if we were up really early), the bus once an hour, the baker’s delivery van and, very occasionally, an emergency vehicle.      See full story...
