Because of the COVID pandemic, this year, in lieu of our traditional 10 mile large group walk from Nazareth to Bethlehem, we invite pilgrims to go for a walk, individually or in small safe groups, in their own neighborhoods (or another place of their choosing) between 12 and 3 pm.
Then, we can join an online gathering on Saturday, Dec. 12 at 4:00pm. Participants will congregate virtually to share their thoughts, reflections, and experiences of peace. If you choose to take your personal peace pilgrimage on another day or time, you are still welcome to join the group zoom at 4pm.
While you walk, we suggest that you might reflect on:
Who you want/need to make peace with…
How you plan to make this peace…
One of the many global conflicts and the people who are working to resolve those conflicts peacefully
During our time together, we could share, for example:
a message of peace.
a short reading or poem
a personal symbol of peace
a personal story of reconciliation
a favorite peacemaker and the work they are doing or have done and how you can support that work now
Please use our website. peacewalk.org to REGISTER YOUR EMAIL so we can send the zoom link and get a sense of how many to expect.
