Mahurangi Presbyterian Church has organised a Mahu “Walk to Bethlehem” as part of this year’s Christmas celebrations.
During Advent (November 24-December 24), participants will recreate the experience of Mary and Joseph by travelling 145km.
This is the distance from Nazareth to the stable at Bethlehem.
Participants will cover the distance by walking, biking, running or swimming on a daily basis.
Biblical texts will be provided to participants so they can meditate on them as they complete their Advent journey.
Participants are encouraged to keep going through rain, hail or shine and to focus on the reason for Christmas.
Pastor Nick McLennan says churches throughout the North Island have been in contact with Mahurangi
Presbyterian to say they will be joining in, and he encourages others to do so.
