What Do You Mean You Don't Know?

Come to the surface of yourself

Upper center, a beautiful Hawk in our backyard tree. What you can’t see is the limp squirrel hanging from its talon.
The Hawk dropped the squirrel. Went in for a closer inspection. Spend enough time in nature and it’s crystal clear, nature is beautiful. Nature is also brutal. Most of us don’t want to think about it. At all.
Predators generally attack their prey’s throat as the easiest and quickest way to subdue the prey. While this can be viewed as a disturbing photo, think about how brutal a lifetime of slow and steady, spiritual (or physical and mental) neglect is. Yet we don’t bat an eye at how disturbing that is.

Come right to the surface of yourself.

What?

When you publicly demonstrate your deepest gratitude, we see the real core, not the facade.

Forests (video)

Glacier National Park, September 27, 2019.

Take a deep breath, exhale.

Repeat with another deep breath.

And exhale.

If you’d like, click on the 5-minute video and focus on your breathing and how beautiful nature is and how often you visit and appreciate nature.

Nature and the Church economy

Nature and the Church economy.

One last walk around Lake McDonald Lodge’s property before heading to the airport.

Walked a route i’d never taken before.

Nature is a portable Church. Want to feel close to God when you travel?

Go for a walk in nature.

All natural ingredients

A National Park, or nature in general, can be “Church”.

All natural ingredients.

  • Fresh air
  • Mountains
  • Lakes
  • Wildlife
  • Minimal human-made structures

The Church pews are rocks, logs, or the ground.

The sermon is whatever thoughts you have that aren’t easily available in “civilization”.

Nature is a Church for everyone

Overnight, from sold out to lots of availability. The less-green boxes are available.

Fingers crossed for one of the August days.

Nature is a Church for everyone.

All those decades when i wasn’t sitting under a Church roof, well, i actually was, but didn’t recognize the sky as the roof.

Nature is a perfect testimony that there is something greater than our mortal understanding can fathom. The mystery of Faith summarizes our inability to understand what we cannot see.

To which i say, go outside, look (and see) and focus on the vastness of Earth’s horizon, or the complex elegance of any insect’s body.
