SPIRITUAL WALKING GUIDE
This walking guide begins and ends at St George-in-the-East Church, and can be followed on your phone. Printed copies are also available in the church. It takes seven stops at different locations suggested by members of our congregation who have found in these places peace, beauty, holiness, and the work of God. It offers a short meditation at each stop, based on the words of Psalm 130 – a Psalm sung by pilgrims for many centuries as they journeyed together to Jerusalem.
This pilgrimage is somewhat shorter than those travelling along that ancient route — it’s about 2.5 miles long. Depending on how long you would like to linger at each stop, it is likely that you will spend between sixty and ninety minutes on this walk. As you follow along, you will be given maps and directions to guide you.
We pray that your walk and pilgrimage are a blessing.
Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord.
2 Lord, hear my voice!
Let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplications!
3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities,
Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with you,
so that you may be revered.
5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
and in his word I hope;
6 my soul waits for the Lord
more than those who watch for the morning,
more than those who watch for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the Lord!
For with the Lord there is steadfast love,
and with him is great power to redeem.
8 It is he who will redeem Israel
from all its iniquities.
