Trekking Across Canada Together
April 8 - June 21Free
Trinity St Andrew’s United Church in Brighton is inviting you on a special pilgrimage. From now until Indigenous day of prayer, June 21, we are trekking across Canada together, and learning about the people through whose traditional territory we will be walking. Will you join us? All you do is email Pamela at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know how many kilometres you have walked from Monday to Sunday, or how many minutes of other types of exercise you have engaged. Every Monday we tally our efforts to discover how far we have walked collectively from St John’s to Victoria, stopping at each capital city along the way. Then Wednesday of each week we will publish an update on our journey, with interviews, links, and video introducing us to the indigenous communities on our path. Why are we doing this? Two main reasons, although you may have your own reasons for joining. 1) we all need an incentive to move our bodies and stay healthy during lockdown and stay-at-home orders. And just as important, 2) we want to learn, build relations, see our country through a different lens. Will you join us? Email Pamela, let her know you are interested, and keep track of your exercise. Then watch for our weekly email introducing us all to the rich traditions, culture and peoples who have lived on this land since time immemorial.
