“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”   – George Washington Carver

The Covenant Hike Group returns this fall and invites new participants who have a wonder of the natural world to share nature immersion with each other through three seasons while experiencing the presence of God.

Beginning Oct. 1 at 2:00 p.m., we’ll gather at a designated location and hike a path in our area for about an hour at a comfortable pace for everyone. The format is simple. We begin with a brief reading (scripture or poem), hike along while sharing joys and concerns, and appreciate 5 minutes of silence at mid-point. Each hike concludes with an optional, brief time of sharing about our experiences on the hike, closing prayer, and a cool or hot drink! All ages are welcome.

We expect to hike on the first Sunday of each month, October through May, hiking various paths in our area. Participants may join in as schedules allow.

All who participate are welcomed to share in leadership. The wonder of the natural world and God’s presence in it is limitless.

Facilitators: Jim Johnson and Lee Rader. If interested, please contact Jim Johnson at Jjohnso@luc.edu to be placed on the distribution list.
