Last Sunday, a group of brave explorers, led by John Brent, wandered through the property like pilgrims on the way to Canterbury. For those who may not know, John is highly skilled at leading nature walks, pointing out flora and fauna, giving us science lessons left and right. When you walk in the forest with John, it is an adventure and a fun learning experience. Our walk was multi-sensory as well, as John encouraged us to look closely, smell deeply, touch gently, taste cautiously, and listen quietly. What most people would think was “just a bush” or “just a tree” becomes a wonderful lesson in the beauty and intricacy of God’s Creation. Many thanks to John for his willingness to explore with us!

After our walk, we were treated with pizza prepared by Graham Horne. It was a great evening and I hope that John will offer to lead another walk for the congregation soon.
