River-to-river pilgrimage across the diocese: Day 1

River-to-river pilgrimage across the diocese: Day 1

Our first day of pilgrimage across the diocese was hot. And humid. our feet and our faith carried us forward, but the real grace for me was the hospitality – from the St. Luke's and St. Mary's folks in Belvidere who served us breakfast, to the staff and Board at House of the Good Shepherd who welcomed us at the end of the day with showers and piles of food.

And then there was the hospitality along the way: one guy in a truck commuting between work sites, kept circling back to the pilgrims to hand out bottles of ice cold water. When the heavens opened with teeming rain, strangers stopped and offered to ferry us to the next stop. In spite of all the fear and violence in the world, our takeaway was hospitality. That is what God is up to.

Photos from the pilgrimage are being collected in this online photo gallery.

Last day walk for my sister Elizabeth Huxtable and her sisters and brothers in christ way to go god bless you all and have a safe walk.
