Every step we take lands on history...
Memories, legacies, roots, rocks and riddles lie under our feet waiting to be discovered. Every step we take lands on history, presses into nature, and stirs up a story.
This month we are going to be thinking about what lies below the surface as we explore archaeology and heritage, legend and legacy, ecology and geology, nourishment and sustenance.
As we follow the footprints we’ll be asking where are the roots sustaining life and where have we become uprooted? What are the historical currents and tectonic plates that have shifted underneath us to bring us to now? What is the earth telling us? Are we listening?
Under our soles are the stories of the souls that have lived here before us. The past doesn’t just live in books or museums, it is literally under our feet... We pray and invite God to travel with us as we consider our history and heritage — where we have come from and where we are going.
We’ll take a walk with God and ask where have you and your shoes been this year? What surfaces have you walked over? What communities have you walked through? Where have you stumbled and where have you leapt? What have you discovered, uncovered, or recovered?
We will walk, run, scramble, slide, jump and sometimes even tread lightly just in case we find, like Moses,
We’re suddenly on holy ground…
Each week of the five week theme runs Sunday-Saturday and has its own subtheme, which contains daily Bible readings and thought triggers (see the Resource Pack PDF for more information).
