“But we sailed from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and in five days we joined them in Troas, where we stayed for seven days” (Acts 20:6)

In the Book of Acts chapter 20, we read about St. Paul’s travel itinerary, as he concludes his Third Witness trip and begins the long journey back to Jerusalem. I know that many of you have enjoyed this slow, long read through the Book of Acts, as we learn about the Jesus Movement making its way from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8).

I really appreciate the approach that Pastor Mike Hughes and the people of God at St. John’s, Stony Ridge are taking with the Summer Book of Acts reading plan. Pastor Mike writes,

“Along with tracing St. Paul’s missionary journeys in the second half of Acts, we’re tracking our steps/miles as a congregation to see if we can keep up with the indefatigable apostle. As of mid-July, we’ve walked over 1,000 miles. It’s not too late to join in the fun. Simply use a pedometer or smart watch to track your steps/miles and then turn them into Pastor Mike by putting a note with your steps into the big blue shoe in the narthex of St. John’s”.

Let’s keep reading (and walking) as we move forward in mission together.
