Sharing stories can lead us in all sorts of directions. A friend told me yesterday that as a result of consulting the ‘bug expert’ at work about the ‘cricket or grasshopper’ question, she was then asked why on earth she had spent a week of her holiday in a field with a group of children? What a chance to share our faith and what motivates us!
I guess that the women on the MWiB pilgrimage will be sharing stories, too, especially in the evenings as they gather together to eat and talk and pray. I was so pleased to see that they set off this morning in bright sunshine and hope it might have continued fine for them, unlike the weather here in Devon today! Yesterday they walked through much rain, as evidenced by Jill Baker’s photos on Twitter. This evening they should be in Seahouses and we look forward to hearing more of their travels and their experience of pilgrimage along this ancient route.
Stop press: as I am writing this a tweet has just popped in, reporting that ‘twelve @MethodistWomen pilgrims have made it to Seahouses and are looking forward to sharing worship in local Methodist Church at 6.30’. Again, the wonders of modern technology!
