Are you weary?
Come away and quiet the “noise” of your day-to-day life.
Perhaps you are in a period of discernment, navigating a potential change.
Walk the wooded prayer path. Center yourself. Feel the earth beneath your feet.
Are you dry, empty, burned out?
Hear the invitation in these words of Jesus:
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
– Matthew 11:28-30 MSG
Experience God through the natural world:
Walk the prayer path in our woods. Feel the earth beneath your feet, a place for you to stand. Explore the greenhouse and gardens where growth is always taking place, no matter what season.
The Hebrew word for Spirit is ruach (pronouced roo-akh), which means “breath” or “wind”. Experience the gentle breeze on your face as you lay in the hammock, or the powerful winds of NC storms. We don’t attempt to control it; we’re just along for the ride!
The water can hold you, all parts of you. Submerge yourself in the waters of Christ’s love. Whether you are soaking your feet, floating, or actively swimming in our salt water pool, may you sense the invitation of the Spirit to go ever deeper.
Join us around the fire pit or sit in solitude as you consider the rich imagery used in scripture around the element of fire.
