NEW MARKET, Va., June 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- After covering nearly 2700 miles since January 1st, Rick and Jane McKinney are less than 100 miles from their final destination of Washington DC. The couple plans to arrive in Washington DC on July 4th ending their six month journey across the country.
“We’ve walked every step of the way,” says Rick McKinney. “People want to know if we’re “tag-teaming” it or switching on and off with each other. We’re not. We’ve both walked every step from Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles to Virginia and we’ve got the blisters and sore muscles to prove it.”
“The Walk To Reclaim America was born out of a desire to our country return to faith of our Founding Fathers.” says Jane McKinney. “We’ve been praying for a spiritual awakening. We’ve seen a change in our own lives as we’ve walked day after day across our nation. I think people are beginning to realize that the key to spiritual renewal in America is reaching out in love to others instead of just feeding their own desires. We’ve had thousands of opportunities to speak to the down and out, buy meals for the homeless, buy bus tickets for fathers trying to get back to their children, and just hug some folks that a lot of people wouldn’t want to even get close to. It’s absolutely life changing.”
“We’ve been saying from the very beginning that this walk is not political. Some people can’t believe that because when you talk about faith or family values they make some assumptions about your political affiliation.” says Rick McKinney. “What we’ve come to believe is that the answer is not political. It’s not educational or environmental. This country’s problem can’t be fixed with a new law or a Supreme Court ruling. We are spiritual beings and we as a nation have a spiritual problem. We’ve forsaken our God. Until we return to a deep and abiding faith in God which is based on a personal relationship with Him we can’t expect to have His blessing and experience His presence as we once did.”
