From ancient times it has been widely acknowledged that there are Two Books from which we can know God: Scripture and Nature. Echoes is newly affiliated with The Wild Church Network, and we’ll be practicing at least one wild church gathering each month.
The theme of ReSist will echo through the waves, the hillsides, the seabirds and rocks, calling to us to listen and reflect on the reality of Christ, present in all things, holder of our stories and memories. We will gather at Little Squalicum Park (and walk down to the beach) to get closer to the gorgeous waters. Wild Church is an opportunity for us to develop spiritual practices that draw us deeper into relationship with the sacred in our own untamed hearts, in our watershed and with our undomesticated God.
Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather. Bring a short chair, a blanket, journal or other creative materials that will help you have a conversation with nature.
Little Squalicum Park

The parking lot is located above the park and will be where we gather until 6:40pm, then we will walk down to the beach together. The trail is accessible and walkable, but will include up to .75 miles walking, please plan accordingly. We highly recommend bringing a chair if you cannot stand for long periods of time.
