an exegetical walk

Here's a great post on exploring your neighbourhood: an exegetical walk. Go read the entire article, but here's an excerpt...
The word exegesis literally means a critical interpretation and is commonly applied to the study of literature. As readers of the Bible, we exegete the text with a view to discerning its truth for our lives. In this exercise you’re invited to undertake an exegesis—a critical interpretation—of your neighbourhood. Through careful, sensitive and critical observation, your task is to discern the truth of God’s presence where you live. Quite simply, it’s about reading your neighbourhood as one of the primary texts of daily life—one through which God speaks.
Then there's a list of 20 questions to ask as you walk around.
