Pilgrims Live 2004 Gloucester - Chester : Justice & Peace


This year's cross:

The 2004 pilgrimage seemed tough physically - and this was confirmed by our resident statistician. Among other notable facts, it had the longest longest day (22.75 miles) and the longest shortest day (14.3 miles) for some years. (Think about it long enough - it does make sense.)

It was also hilly. Although I suspect that all pilgrimages have had hills, the 2004 seemed to have at least one, if not several, every day.

This year, rather than focussing on a particular saint somehow associated with our destination, we reflected on the theme of 'Justice & Peace'. This was broken down into a particular topic for reflection each day and led to a broad range of subjects for prayer stops.
