Walk With Us
Hannah: Week 1
February Walking Challenge: miles with Hannah
We’re continuing our walking journey this month alongside Hannah, one of the underappreciated women psalmists in the Bible. If you’ve seen the phrase “for this child I have prayed” on baby shower gifts, then you already know a few of Hannah’s words! She suffered silently through infertility but went on to have a son, Samuel, who became the last judge and first prophet of Israel.
Hannah traveled annually from her home in Ramathaim (Ramah for short!) to Shiloh to offer sacrifices at the tabernacle; the distance from Ramah to Shiloh is approximately 15 miles and will be our distance goal for this month’s walking challenge.
This week read how Hannah overcame her situation and showed tenacity in the face of adversity. Read Hannah’s story in 1 Samuel 1:1-2:11 https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/…
