We are planning a Grief Run this Saturday, September 22nd, 9:00am at Whittier Park.
Amanda Leighton has organized this event for our community. She writes, “This is something visceral & physical for us to do together as an expression of our sadness and our anger and our anguish; as an expression of our grief. It is an act of prayer and worship in truth and honesty.”
“We will run through the darkness to get to the Light.” -Joyce Rees
The run is approximately 2 km and will take about 25 minutes at a slow to medium pace. The route is suitable for all paces – walk, jog or sprint. The path will be well marked and it will be easy to see each other and stay together. There will be a guided liturgy to help center us before and after.
Everyone is welcome.
We will meet at the shelter in front of Fort Gibraltor.
