Pilgrimage Week 12

HOME

Pilgrimage Goal: 7292 km

Total Participants: 58

Total To Date: 17,584 km

 

WOW!  That is move than 10,000 km OVER our initial goal.

 

Are We There Yet?

YES WE ARE!

Can you believe that only 83 days ago we virtually gathered at Cape Spear, NL to walk to the Pacific coastline. With no idea of the necessary time and energy - we set out. In the first week we walked 946.3 KM and found ourselves on a ferry to NS , surrounded by icebergs!

Every week we were invited to ponder a word - Justice, anger, rest, wonder, isolation, beauty, endurance , disappointment, hospitality, ending, and my word was grateful.

Every day, we were grateful for all of you ‘walking together apart’.

The beautiful pictures, the interesting quiz that helped us learn interesting Canadian facts and all the opportunities to join others in worship - it was perfect. We will miss you but now we continue to walk together!

So on behalf of the organizers we thank you for walking with us, for sharing pictures and stories and walking all the way home. Please tell your friends that you walked across Canada and back with a wonderful group of like minded people who walked with respect in creation. It’s good to be home!

  1. Thank you, everyone! What a journey! And thank you, Terry, for the incredible website you hosted, all the links, researching the places along the way, coordinating our pictures. Kudos! Well done 🙂

  2. How was your trip? Good to be home! That is the common question and response however this is a special time in history.
    ‍♂️this was a very special virtual trip so to answer the first question – what was the experience like for me. The first few weeks were amazing because we were covering so much of Canada . I found myself getting stronger and my passion for nature grew as I watched the trees grow their leaves, the wild flowers come and go, the bird population grow in numbers and the sounds changed as new song birds arrived. Nature is wonderful !

    I enjoyed visiting the site and learning more about Canada. As well, checking on how the other walkers, runners, bikers and those using other ways to join in, were doing. It was always fun to check the the pictures. The experience strengthened my body and spirit.
