* For outdoor gatherings, bring a chair and something to share (food, scripture reading, encouragement, prayer, etc.).
* If you can also bring your bike or paddle board or hiking shoes as we like to incorporate some form of outdoor exercise in our "Church Has Left the Building" events.
Following the hike / walk / saunter we will enjoy a meal together.
"Hiking - I don't like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not hike! Do you know the origin of that word 'saunter?' It's a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, "A la sainte terre,' 'To the Holy Land.' And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not 'hike' through them." John Muir
