“The idea that we live in something called “the environment” is utterly preposterous. The world that environs us, that surrounds us, is also within us. We are made of it; we eat, drink, and breathe it; is bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh.” Wendell Berry
Come and explore the natural beauty of DaySpring through a series of talks and reflective nature walks: we’ll be exploring themes of the natural world and our relationships with God’s creation. Share your discoveries with fellow retreatants as you pray and worship in this sacred space. We will learn about natural Florida, what nature teaches us about the Creator and what response we are invited into. The walks will mostly be on dirt trails.
Bill Lewis has helped folks engage with the natural world for over 30 years through Sierra Club outings, Audubon outings, Nature Conservancy volunteering, and church-sponsored reflective walks.
