Spirituality in the Wilderness with Jessica Forbes LeFiles
Time & Location
Dec 06, 2020, 9:20 AM
About the Event
The Wilderness features prominently in Scripture, from the Israelites wandering in the wilderness after being liberated to Jesus fasting in the wilderness after his baptism. Moses famously told Pharoah, Let My people go that they may celebrate a feast to me in the wilderness." Hikers and backpackers have transformative experiences in it and we send our kids to camp in it at Camp Henry. Millions of people flock to our Blue Ridge Mountains each year for a taste of the wilderness. What is it about the wilderness that makes it such a spiritually significant place? What does the wilderness evoke for you, a place of freedom and independence, danger and desolation?
Join us Sundays in Advent for informal coffee conversations together on Zoom with a few special guests who will share their experiences of the outdoor, like Trinitarian High Garst who recently completed a through-hike of the Appalachian Trail, Jessica Forbes LeFiles, new director of Camp Henry and Outdoor Programming, and more.
Meeting will open at 9:20 and begin at 9:30.
