This Easter season, we are logging distance walked, steps counted, minutes of physical activity - and also spiritual activity (prayer, scripture verses, meditation), and participation in & service to our church community. Find the tear off slip on the back of the ScarboroNews to log your total 'kilometers' as we strive to cover the distance from Calgary to Jerusalem between now and Pentecost.

So far, we were hoping to find ourselves somewhere in the midst of the Atlantic Ocean (the official mileage will be tallied and posted online on Monday). Whether we make our goal or not, we will keep on moving with a new goal of Torrelavga, Spain for May 26.

Each Sunday we will pause to pray for the cities, towns, and countries that we pass through:
