Our #walkpraylove event might have finished yesterday, but don't let that stop you carrying on walking, praying and loving your neighbourhoods.
But how can we put love into action? What are some of the practical ways in which we can show love towards our neighbours? #lovethroughlent

Another weekend has arrived - how could you benefit from a bit of breathing space? A walk in the fresh air maybe - why not get out and about if you can and see what signs of spring are beginning to emerge? Or you could just fling open a window and enjoy a few breaths of fresh air. #breathe #lovethroughlent

It's been so encouraging to see so many people involved with #walkpraylove Great pictures and maps showing that so many areas around town have been blessed with God's love over the days of February! If you've not been out yet there's still a couple of days to get involved before our event draws to a close at the weekend.

Whilst walking this week in the Old Town I noticed a sign in an opticians window that said "seeing beneath the surface is essential". This prompted me to think that as we walk and pray we can ask God to help us to see beyond what is actually in front of us, as there is most probably so much more going on than we could ever know at first glance. Then, through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, we can pray with deeper insight. I wonder - where have you been walking and what's been prompting you to pray as you "walk...pray...love"?
