About This Event

Wild Church (LeAnn Blackert, Lesly Comrie & Michele Walker)

Ages 18 – 68

Monday-Friday, 9:00 (contact info blocked) – 11:45 (contact info blocked)

$250 + $10 materials fee

The Christian story starts in a garden with humanity in conversation and relationship with the Holy One and all of creation. Somewhere far down that luxurious path through the woods, structures began to be built and “church” became walled in. Wild Church is our attempt to return to the natural world to find connection with God, Source, Creator, whatever you name that which is bigger than we are. We will meet in “the wild” to explore and experience the spiritual and the sacred as individuals and in community. Two afternoons we will offer “Wilder Church,” to the wider Naramata Centre community for a $10 materials fee. We invite you to join us on a pilgrimage into wilder space in the area for a time of activity-based reflection.
