Lutherans retrace steps

Sarah Hinlicky Wilson and Andrews Lars Wilson completed a 70-day journey on Oct. 29, retracing on foot Martin Luther's historic trip from Erfurt, Germany, to Rome.

They left Aug. 22 on their "Here I Walk" pilgrimage.

Traveling 1,001 miles, they used the journey to call attention to Luther and the importance of ecumenism.

Sarah Wilson, an ELCA pastor, is research professor at the Institute for Ecumenical Research in Strasbourg, France, and editor of Lutheran Forum.

Andrews Lars Wilson is a postdoctoral fellow at the Foundation for Interreligious and Intercultural Research and Dialogue, Geneva.
