         Rev'd Pippa Ponders

It is so wonderful at this time of year that the evening are so long and the light lingers. I love walking and so it means after a busy day I can go for a long walk early evening with my dog, Obi. I enjoy listening to the birds and watching Obi splash around in the river, or indeed any puddle he can find. But walks are so much better with a friend – walking and talking together. Obi and I are very fortunate to have two great friends – Anne with her lovely dog Mabel. We both look forward to our walks with them - Obi especially gets very excited to see Mabel. Anne and I walk and chat about life, the universe and everything! Walking and talking is a great way to communicate with one another – whether with a friend, a family member or even God.

 

As we walk together with someone, or with God, we are in communion with them. Both Enoch and Noah walked with God – they didn’t just sit, kneel or stand with God as we might do in church, but instead they were in communion with God whilst doing something else. So often we can be tempted to put God in a box, keeping Him just for Sunday, or when we say grace at dinner, or when we choose to have a quiet time with Him. Then the rest of the time we might not really give much thought to God, or chat to Him or listen to Him.

 

But actually whilst we are working, eating, exercising, washing up, driving or even shopping we can be in communion with God. When we do this we find that we start to tune into the promptings of God, the Holy Spirit, deep within us – leading and guiding us – not for our physical walk in the country but in our lives. He might even highlight someone He wants us to approach to chat to and even offer to pray for. That is what we are called to do – to walk in step with the Holy Spirit each and every day. Then as we get more used to His promptings He gives us both the courage and opportunities to share those things He has shown us. 

Who will you choose to walk with this week? As you walk with them, will you listen to the Holy Spirit too – you might be surprised by what He shows you.


Love Pippa

Rev'd Pippa Ford

Vicar, St Michael’s Camberley.
