God, lead us to our footpath.
Nothing can be loved at speed.
God, lead us to the slow path;
to the joyous insights of the pilgrim;
another way of knowing;
another way of being.
From Michael Leunig Three-mile-an-hour God

Walk leaders for September 29th
Paul and Pam Cavendish from All Saints Allesley
Some walking on town streets as well as tracks and fields. Take care walking on and crossing busy roads especially Astley Lane.
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
Who have set their hearts on pilgrimage.
