Last month, I had the real honor of representing NEHM and the Episcopal Church at the 'Communities on the Move' event, coordinated by the White House and the Let's Move! campaign. There is something uniquely thrilling about receiving an invitation from the White House and I was honored to be included in this event, representing the Episcopal Church's good work on healthier living.

My wife Karen and I were discussing our own desire to eat healthier, as well as our desire to help others in our family as well. I'm sure the profile is familiar to many of us: lives alone, approaching 70 years old, increasingly sedentary, overweight, experiencing more frequent health problems.

<h1><a href="/blog/diocese-of-bethlehem-is-moving">Diocese of Bethlehem is Moving!</a></h1>
This year, five parishes from the Diocese of Bethlehem, as well as several other "independents" have joined together to collectively walk the distance from eastern Pennsylvania to Jerusalem to arrive in time to walk the Via Dolorosa on Good Friday. [We're] 533 miles ahead of schedule as of last Saturday, so should arrive in that Holy City in time for the first Eucharist at the Passover Feast!
