It's easy to get lost in the busyness of every day. But taking a walk and discovering God's presence along the way will bring you back to where you need to be.

The Walking Bible Study, a series of short readings and meditations, is your field guide to learning more about Scripture as you travel through nature and life. Wherever you walk, take it along with you and follow the paths of God.

"Walking changes us; it can transport our spirits from being weighed down by life into the joy of God's presence." - Becca Stevens

Each study consists of four sessions. Sessions include prayer, Scripture, Becca's thoughts and stories, questions to think about or discuss, and activities.


The Path of Justice

Becca teaches that God will let justice roll like a river and that the diversity of nature, its order and chaos, should call us to walk in humility. Nature reveals a just God who will hold creation accountable for its behavior. But because God's justice is balanced by love and mercy, new creation is all around us and we have reason to celebrate all the springs in our lives.
