Worship in the Woods
Monthly on the 4th Sunday 3:00 PM
As restrictions on meetings are easing, our monthly Worship in the Woods continue on the fourth Sunday of the month at 3:00 pm. (See below for updates on Sunday.)
Join us as we connect all people, God and creation through nature contemplation. And for the month of February, trek through the snow!
Celebrate the Divine presence in all things as we seek to live in harmony with everyone and everything. Transform yourself and renew the Earth as we worship together on the beautiful shore of Lake Cochichewick.
Rooted in the Christian tradition, Worship in the Woods is open to people of all faiths and in all stages of the spiritual path. If nature is your "church", this is the place for you. For more on nature contemplation, check out Lawrence's blog here.
Registration is free, and encouraged. Please wear a face mask and be prepared to maintain physical distancing as we gather. Also note that there will be no access to the Rolling Ridge mansion.
Check this web page the day before for weather preparation updates.
FOR SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 28th = Cloudy in the mid 40's with a slight chance of rain. In spite, we are still planning on a snowshoeing Worship in the Woods. Rolling Ridge has not cleared our trails so we have a foot of snow on the grounds, though some has been melted with the rains. The main parking lot is still snowed in so follow the plowed road to the staff parking area. Please park perpendicular to the lake. We will meet at the back of the house and walk together by 3:05 pm. PLEASE BRING SNOWSHOES! You will need snowshoes to get to Point of Pines and join in our meditative time of mindful walking in the snow. Although it will be in the 40s, please dress warm with layers as you may heat up as we snowshoe. Please also arrive wearing a facial covering. Thanks!
