It appears that over the next few weeks, all COVID restrictions are going to be lifted in Virginia. In light of this, when the board met last weekend, we discussed the possibility of conducting walks this fall. It was felt by everyone that it was just too risky. Therefore, the decision to postpone this year’s walks to 2022 will stand. See the calendar for the dates.

As we sent out in a mass email, the June Gathering will be held in Louisburg, NC at the Hill King United Methodist Church starting at 5:00 PM.

Gatherings are open to anyone, whether they have attended a walk or not. Nothing at the Gatherings “tips our hand” about what happens during a walk. If you have potential pilgrim who is undecided, bring them to a Gathering. Bring your family. Bring your friends. As I said, Gatherings are open.

Speaking of Gatherings, plans are underway to hold our annual Gathering/Picnic on July 17. The location is not finalized yet, we have put feelers out to several locations and they are waiting on the lifting of restrictions before they will accept reservations.

John Watson
