For the past few years, instead of being indoors on Easter, we take a walk. The walk connects us with our city, our local history, the Easter story, and each other.
We'll gather on the sidewalk outside Bellingham City Hall (210 Lottie St) at 2:30pm. Starting in downtown Bellingham, our next destination is Whatcom Creek, then moving on to Maritime Heritage Park. Pausing along the way for "narrative interruptions," we'll re-live the story of Jesus' last days, death, and game-changing resurrection, ending alongside the waters of Whatcom Creek where we remember our own immersion into this story through faith, doubt, baptism, struggle, fear, and hope. The walk will be approximately 1/2 mile, and the terrain includes sidewalks, some stairs, and trail. This is a unique Easter experience!
Weather is, as always, unknown. Prepare for rain, and hope for sun. (Since it IS April, it wouldn't hurt to bring an umbrella and/or rain gear.) If you have any questions at all, please contact us through this website, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Earlier in the day, from 10am - noon, we will be joining Bellingham Parks and Rec for a service project on the Railroad Trail, near Whatcom Falls Park. Info about that is here. It's our opportunity to practice resurrection, ushering in new life into our local ecosystem.
Jesus is risen! Let us rise, too.
