Finding God, self, and community in wild spaces. The better we know our wild neighbors the more we'll discover ourselves.

Who is my neighbor?

 Love God with all of your faculties, and love your neighbor as yourself. That's what Jesus said when he was asked what is most important.

And the next question, "who is my neighbor?" is a critical consideration for every generation.

Lord have mercy upon us. Empower us with inner strength by your Spirit...to do better...to be better...to live for more.



Jesus, please provide us with wisdom and courage to love our neighbors as you have loved us. Amen.
