Andrew sells all his possessions and gives the money away and steps out. Andrew walks with no money for over 200 miles. London to Paris and beyond just with trust and love.

Andrew chose to become

Homeless

Poor

Open to ridicule

Judged

Andrew’s choices offend and challenge the mainstream sensibilities; He throws a light on

Materialism

Doctrines

Hypocrisy

Life dominated by ‘Cheap' grace

Andrew, in a bold departure from societal norms, embarked on a unique journey that he refers to as "The Walk." This unconventional path involves deliberately choosing to exist without the confines of a permanent residence. Simultaneously, he has willingly embraced a state of poverty as a conscious rejection of materialistic pursuits. Andrew's commitment extends beyond his living conditions; he has decided to be open to ridicule, acknowledging that his choices may subject him to criticism and mockery from others.

"The Walk" represents Andrew's deliberate defiance of societal expectations, a commitment to authenticity, and a pursuit of a life guided by personal principles rather than conforming to conventional norms.

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

Matt : 19 . 21

Andrew studied Theology at Oxford University, this led him to write The Hustler’s Tale. A spiritual autobiography. The Foreword written by Dr. Martyn Percy (former Dean of Christchurch College Oxford). 

Andrew was noviced into the Franciscan Third Order in October 2023.

My lived experience when asked ‘is there a God ?’ demands that I reply ‘Look the Human man-made God is definitely dead’, but I also know that there is a power greater than me, and all the time I separate myself  from this because I am seeking comfort in attachment. Attachment to people, places, and things.

Andrew stepped out with no money, just trust and faith that he would be provided for on his pilgrimage.
