Finding God, self, and community in wild spaces. The better we know our wild neighbors the more we'll discover ourselves.
A vision informed by Henry David Thoreau’s interpretation of sauntering, Jesus’ understanding of neighbor, Aldo Leopold’s concept of thinking like a mountain, Rachel Carson’s prophetic voice and John Muir’s way of capturing the beauty and uniqueness of wild neighbors with words.

Priceless Treasure

A reflection from my time at the location which is in the middle of Pine Creek (visible from Barbour Rock vista looking southeast) that I call Sycamore Island:

Biodiversity is a priceless treasure; let us cherish and protect it today and forever. Head to the mountains, valleys, lakes, rivers, and oceans. Spend time in the marshlands, deserts, and canyons. Take in all of the goodness, beauty and diversity of these wild spaces and the wildlife that call each home. Live in the moment; and when you return, find ways to share with others the priceless treasures you’ve found there and the inspiration that the Spirit of God has placed within your heart. Together our voices will be like many drops of water in a mighty current, our advocacy protecting the priceless treasure of biodiversity for generations to come.
