During my retreat I read Legs of Lamb: The Story of One Man’s Prayer Walk Around the Coast of Britain by Gary Lamb. Gary Lamb was given the vision to prayer walk around Britain’s coast, a 4,600 mile journey. This book is his record and musings of his journey.
In one sense it’s a very bizarre story, why would a young man walk around the cost of Britain praying, let alone then record his time in a book for others to read. But it works. Gary shares with us the moment of deciding to make some changes in his life, relating his childhood disdain for forced church attendance with his mum, and finding his relationship to God. He then writes with humour and ease about people he met on the way, those who gave him hospitality, his different experiences of visiting churches across the country and more.
