Briefly noted

Progressive Christian activists finished their four-and-a-half-month trek across the country September 3 at a church in Washington, D.C. Organized by CrossWalk America, the march started in Phoenix on Easter and covered 2,500 miles, ending with a rally at Foundry United Methodist Church. Ten people walked the whole way and more than 11,000 participated in some way, most helping with lodging and food, said Rebecca Glenn, CrossWalk’s cofounder and copresident.
