In these days of being allowed one form of exercise outside, it will be no surprise to anyone who knows me that I’ve stuck to walking. The weather’s been on our side even if it feels like nothing else has.

A walk is the subject of this sunday’s bible reading too. It happens after Jesus has been crucified, and the disciples are grieving and confused. They feel alone and unsure what to do next. What happens on their walk changes their outlook.

Luke’s Gospel chapter 24: verses 13-35

“Two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem and talking with each other about these things that had happened. While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and walked with them...”

If you want to know what happens next, google the passage or grab a bible and find out.... !

I’’ve posted a painting and some photos of my Emmaus walks below.

Frederich Nietzche said “All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking”

If you can name any of the roads I’ve walked, you’re welcome to comment on the post and tell me ..
