Walk-a-Mile


Every Christmas, our town
does something wonderful.


People walk from church to church
in the heart of our town.

(Literal heart.

And metaphorical heart.)


This year, the Episcopal Church was the first stop.
Quiet. Peaceful.

Next was The Rock.
Amazing singing and dancing

And then we were off to visit
Templo Cristo Para Todos,
the Baptist Church,
and three more churches.

Songs. Scripture. Prayer.
Cookies, too.

A lovely night.

What Christmas traditions do you celebrate?

I hope you will stop by the others on the tour today:

There is something about Walk-a-Mile that makes me feel all is right with the world.

At least for one night.

What a great tradition. It gives people the opportunity to visit different places and see how their neighbors worship. Thanks for sharing this with us.

What a nice tradition! It seems that there's a church on every street corner in Providence. I wonder if we could do something like that.

Merry Christmas!

What a wonderful site you have here. I found it from your BookCrossing site. I don't have time just now, but I shall be back and wander through the halls and passageways because I like what I see. I also write novels. Mine can get a bit gritty, but that's just me. Glad I found this place.
