Our members, Peter and Berthy Verhage are undertaking a sponsored walk in order to raise funds for the church. They will be walking around 1100km (around 684 miles!) from Seville to Santiago de Compostella. There will be a sponsor sheet at the Church door on Sundays and in the Church office if you wish to sponsor Peter and Berthy. They will be keeping us posted with email updates of their journey. We send them our best wishes for their travels! Please see Berthy and Peters Walk to read about their progress.
Berthy’s latest posts –
Home after our long trip. We left Santiago on Saturday morning in the pouring rain, arrived in Amsterdam in glorious sunshine to see my Mother. And now we are back in Scotland, our little paradise. I would like to thank everybody who made this journey even better, friends on the way and support from home. I hope I stay focused and can listen to the small whisper in my heart.
We have arrived in Santiago after 41 days of walking. All is well. Happy and in good health. The spires of the cathedral are visible in the distance.
One more day to go before we enter Santiago. Day 40 today. We have followed the signs from Sevilla. What a journey it has been. Sometimes we lost the signs, but we knew we had to go North. After tomorrow we will go back to the life we know. It would be easy if we had these physical signs in our life, but thankfully we are guided by our faith and convictions and i hope our spirituality has deepened by walking in silence and listening to the inner voice.
Thank you to everyone who supported the Water Aid Lent Appeal. This year we raised £1230.
