A few years ago, someone affiliated with our church took a tour of Historic Yorktown and couldn't help but think of some spiritual parallels between the historic landmarks and some very key biblical markers. This walk became something of significance to her and she later shared the meaningful experience with our children's minister. Soon "Crosswalk," a devotional walk for families, was born and a number of people shared in this experience in preparation for Easter. Crossroads plans to sponsor the walk again this year through Historic Yorktown Easter Weekend. Here is a little news release I worked up for media outlets recently:
On Saturday, April 3, 2010 Crossroads Community Church will sponsor an interactive devotional walk ("Crosswalk") through Historic Yorktown in observance of Easter.

The Third Annual Crosswalk will consist of 12 different stops at markers throughout Historic Yorktown which will serve as representations of biblical markers during the walk. From the Nelson House Garden (which will depict the Garden of Gethsemane) to Cornwallis' Cave (which will depict the empty tomb of Jesus Christ), participants will receive program guides that will lead them from start to finish in a 60-minute devotional walk prepared for individuals and families to observe the Easter holiday.

Crosswalk is open to the general public and free of charge. The walk will begin from the parking lot on Buckner Street and is open from 9:00am - 12:00pm on Saturday, April 3, 2010.
