Silent Prayer Awareness Walk

Your Interim Pastor, Transition Team, [and Prayer Team], invite you to join them in a brief walk around the neighborhood on October 8th, 11:30 to 12:15.  In case you’ve never been on a walk like this, here’s what it entails:  A small group of us silently walking around Manchester for half an hour or so, simply being aware of what we see.  For example:  Are there tricycles in the driveways?  Trampolines in the yards?  Moms/dads with strollers on the sidewalks?  Elderly people sitting on porches?  Houses with peeling paint?  Handicap ramps?  Halloween decorations?  Shops with creative signs/displays in their windows?  etc, etc.  At the end of the walk, we gather in the sanctuary and “report back” what we noticed.  Then, we pray for the well-being of the people we’ve seen.  Note:  Prayer walks are not a means of evangelizing our neighbors; prayer walks are a means for God to open our eyes and hearts to the people around us.  (Also note:  We won’t be conspicuously praying while we are walking, so anyone taking notice of us won’t view us as religious zealots; to the average person, we will simply look like a small group of people out for a Sunday stroll :).
