This stage of the Wicklow Way ( 15 and 15b)  can be completed in one walk. A shorter return route to Kilquiggan Church is along the road after decending down from the woods of Upper Aghowle

=========================
Along the roads and lanes
 to the woodlands of
Raheenakit
and
Aghowle

The two walks together I would describe as strenuous and the additional distance ( see Wicklow Way 16 ) as very strenuous. There is an ascent of 200 metres and a descent of 200 metres with ups and downs on the rolling hills. Returning by road to Kilquiggan Church reduces much of the 200 metres to re-climb.

The rural lanes take you through farm life where you will hear and see (and smell) cattle and sheep. For myself it was a place I would rarely visit but was glad of the experience and it was all part of the enjoyment of the walk of the Wicklow Way

The Epistles - Letters to Kingdom Citizens

As people became followers of Jesus they associated together in small groups, often meeting in homes. Here the Kingdom of God was not displayed in wealth, lofty buildings or in pomp of its leaders. It was hidden in the hearts of its humble and  insignificant (to the world) adherents. The Epistles were letters written to these groups explaining the faith and giving instructions on how to live (in an alien country) as citizens of the Kingdom. 

The Epistles taught the same truths as the  Gospels (which were written later). Here in this sample the Apostle Paul summarised his teaching in one of his letters. " Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.  By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,  and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.  After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born". 1 Corinthians 15: 1 to 8
