May's Liturgical Hike: Celebrating our 1st Year

Greetings All,

It's been a whole year since we began Worship in the Wilderness in May 2008 and what a wonderful year it has been.  I give thanks for such wonderful hikes and hikers and for the wonderfully creative worship that we have shared over these last twelve months.  It has been a true ministry of the Spirit and I look forward to many more months and years together.

On Sunday May 3rd, to commemorate the beginning of our second year, we will hike one of our favorites, Aspen Vista.  The weather has been quite nice recently and I think we will see some wonderful signs of the new season.  As always though, be sure to be prepared for any possible inclement weather at that altitude and be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, clothing layers, etc.  Also, since it is possible that some of us may have been a little less active during the cold weather months we will hike at an easy pace and stop frequently for rest, liturgical tidbits and reflection.  I anticipate that we will stop for Holy Eucharist at our "normal" spot and then those who wish to go on may do so at their own pace after the dismissal.

For those who wish to meet at St. Bede's please be in the parking lot by 8:30am and we will leave there by 8:45am.  For those who may wish to meet us at the Aspen Vista trailhead, I anticipate that we'll be there by about 9:30ish.

For my planning purposes please send me a quick e-mail letting me know if you're planning to hike with us using the link to the right on this page.  I look forward to seeing you all on May 3rd.
