In his encyclical Laudato Si', Pope Francis enjoins us to care for our common home. 'As part of the universe, called into being by one Father, all of us ... form a ... universal family' ... 'Everything is related, and we human beings are united as brothers and sisters on a wonderful pilgrimage, woven together by the love God has for each of his creatures and which also unites us in fond affection with brother sun, sister moon, brother river and mother earth.'
This week will provide opportunities to look at creation by exploring the countryside around Hyning, on the edge of the Lake District. Refreshed by this we will consider the implications of this 'wonderful pilgrimage', 'the great ... challenge which stands before us' and the renewal it demands.
We expect to walk around 10 miles a day, with breaks for reflection, worship and a picnic. In the evenings we will consider what we are discovering and enjoy the usual evening activities.
