The philosopher Kierkegaard once said: ‘Above all, do not lose your desire to walk. Every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walkedmyself into my best thoughts.’ During this week of Lent, go on your own pilgrim walk and contemplate certain aspects of faith along the path. Consider the following as ways in which you can make your journey more meaningful: Faith: Light a candle as a symbol of your faith before setting out. Penance: No complaining! If you stumble and wind up in a mucky puddle, say ‘Thanks be to God!’ Community: Include the ‘stranger’ in your group or better still, why not walk the path with someone you have rarely/never spoken to? Who knows what God may tell you, as he speaks to you through another’s heart? Change of Heart: Follow some part of the journey reflecting in quiet time. What is the Lord suggesting you must change about yourself? Celebration: Share your hope, your joy, your love and your care.
