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.

Brought to you by John Muir:

"How many mouths nature has to fill, how many neighbors we have, how little we know about them, and how seldom we get in each other's way! Then to think of the infinite numbers of smaller fellow mortals, invisibly small, compared with which the smallest ants are as mastodons."
(John Muir. My First Summer in the Sierra. Dover Publications Inc. Mineola, NY 2004. pg 25)

And who is my neighbor? Jesus says my neighbor is the one to whom I extend the loving-kindness of God. (Luke 10: 25-37)

Connecting the dots, a question for each of us to consider: Who is my neighbor?
