Walk to Jerusalem Endeavor

5,848 Miles or 17,243,413 Steps

Are you looking for motivation to start a healthy lifestyle in 2023?

Why not join us on our walk the 5,848 miles from Otterbein UMC to Jerusalem. The Walk to Jerusalem is an imaginary walk that encourages walkers to increase their physical activity, mental activity, and spiritual growth through a virtual pilgrimage to Jerusalem – all the things Pastor Steve has shared in his sermon series over the last few weeks.

Think of the benefits!

Walking is first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 3:8, “Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day.” Our bodies were made for walking. Our joints need movement to maintain good range of motion. None of this can be accomplished by sitting in a chair or lying on a couch (sorry!). The benefits of walking can prevent depression, lengthen lifespan, lower stress levels, relieve arthritis and back pain, strengthen muscles, bones, joints, and improve sleep.

Come join us on our Spiritual / Mental / Physical Journey!

Week 1 - Feb 23 – Feb. 25
Week 2 – Feb. 26 – March 4
Week 3 – March 5
Week 4 – March 12 – 18
Week 5 – March 19 – 25
Week 6 – March 26 – April 1
Week 7 – April 2 – 8 (Should arrive in Jerusalem!)
