Our Advent Journey to Bethlehem
During Advent this year, our congregation would like to go on a journey together, with Mary and Joseph, -- to Bethlehem. From Atlantic Beach, Florida to Bethlehem, Israel it is 6,465 miles. We would like to travel those miles together. Whether you walk, bike, run or skip we hope you will go with us. How will this work? As you go about your daily life, exercising as you normally do, we hope you will send us the number of miles you travel each day (an average at the end of the week, month or Advent Season will do). We will enter those miles into our tracker below and by the end of Advent our goal is, as a whole congregation, to have exercised 6,465 miles -- enough to get us to the most Holy city of Bethlehem, for the birth of Christ.
Our goal is twofold. We hope to get our congregation members exercising together. We are also working hard to try new, different and creative activities as a whole congregation, together.
