Hello walking companions! And a special welcome everyone who joined us during the week, it’s lovely to have you along. Its time to party because you have just made it through the most arduous week of our Long Walk… so many downhills, sharp turns, ups and downs, you must be feeling it! You’ll be relieved to hear that our journey together this week now begins to ease as the road winds along through the refreshing hill country of the Promised Land (milk and honey readily available!). We’ll be walking together with Abraham and then his sons and grandsons, so we’ve got great company, great adventures and great drama ahead of us as we journey along with God on His long walk of grace.
Now, this is a journey that is most valuable when shared (as most journeys are!) so if you haven’t got a walking companion yet, grab a friend or two and invite them to join you. It’s not too late. There is a simple Walking Companion ‘Trail Talks’ sharing guide for you and your friends to talk over as you journey together. So plan a walking party (virtually or face to face) and break out that thermos of tea and box of chocolate brownies!
And don’t worry one bit if, as we walk along, you have found yourself lagging behind, not able to keep up with the pace. Don’t worry about trying to catch up… just join us wherever you are at and whenever you can. And come and go from our walking party as your time allows. Jesus is our head guide on this journey and He’ll make sure you don’t miss anything He thinks you need to see.
Now, I am so thrilled to put into your hands a few more fun encouragements for your journey this week. I hope they bless you in any small way they can.

It’s been so lovely hearing from some of you as we travel along together. I love that we can learn from each other and deepen one another’s journey’s as we go. Remember there’s always space to chat on The Long Walk site (in the comments section) as well as on our Facebook ‘walking together’ group. Let’s keep talking as we explore the long story of grace together.
See you on the road tomorrow as we continue our adventure in the deep wide and long story of God’s long walk of grace!
