Walk a Human this Christmas

Merry Christmas!

people-walkerThis week a 60 second documentary about The People Walker popped up in my Facebook feed and I have to say, I loved it. (The mini doc, not the fact that facebook clutters up my feed.) Chuck McCarthy hires himself out as a walking companion in California. His customers get accountability, exercise, and conversation; they get out and get moving and that’s the part I think is fantastic.

This Christmas you will spend time with people you’re related to but haven’t seen in months. This can feel awkward. Take them out and walk them: it’s easier to have a conversation when you’re walking instead of staring at each other.

Other people you spend time with will be people you see very often, perhaps too often. Take them out and walk them: it gives you a break from the hustle and bustle and clears your head. You can even spend the time together walking silently.

If you’re spending time with mini-people, take them out and walk them. Maybe run them. The more energy they use outside, the less hustle and bustle there will be inside. If the mini-people complain about the cold, tell them to walk faster.

May your Christmas be Christ-filled and Merry! Happy People-walking!

 

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.  Ephesians 5:1-2
