Echoes gathers every Monday evening! There is also at least one service project/month, scheduled on the 3rd Sat of the month. As with all Echoes events, anyone is welcome to join! Most Monday gatherings are located at the WHATCOM LAND TRUST, but click on the event just to make sure. 

Our 2017 gathering rhythm is:

3rd Saturday: service project/volunteer (making B'ham better for all!)

4th Monday: worship

5th Monday -if there is one- flexible fifth (all kinds of cray cray)

Contemplative (prayer) walk

Life can happen at a pace that outruns our spirit. 

Slowing down, literally, can restore a sense of self. Being in nature can provide more room to breathe and regain centeredness. Contemplative walking provides the opportunity to experience nature in slower motion.

Our walk will be in the peaceful setting of Stimpson Nature Preserve. We'll try a few contemplative exercises, walking mostly in silence, stopping briefly to discuss the experience. The pace is meditative and the terrain is not difficult. 

Meet at the parking lot for Stimpson on Lake Louise Road, for a 6:30pm start time.  The parking lot is small enough that you can't miss us, but big enough to be sure of a parking space.

Wear comfortable shoes, and bring a layer if you are easily chilled. If you'll need some water, please bring your own.

There is no need whatsoever to have experience in contemplative prayer or contemplative walking. For most this will be an experiment in something new, a chance to connect with God and/or self in a different manner. Email us if you'd like more information.

We do not want to be beginners. But let us be convinced of the fact that we will never be anything else but beginners. – Thomas Merton, on the topic of prayer
