Walking with God in Nature Prayer Day Ferny Creek
September 7 at 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
Kew, Victoria 3101 Australia
This is an opportunity for you to spend some reflective time walking in silence within a faith community in Nature. It offers you the experience of listening to God speaking to you in Nature. A time for guided reflection and contemplation whilst walking in nature.
Starting from Ferny Creek Reserve in the Dandenongs, we walk two loops: in the morning via quite country roads to Sassafras, then via Sassafras Creek Trail and the Alfred Nicholas Gardens back to Ferny Creek for a picnic lunch: in the afternoon we cross the road for a loop through Sherbrooke Forest. A mix of tall forest, lush tree fern gullies, quite streets, pine tree avenues and ornamental gardens (rhododendrons and azaleas should be starting to flower).
Total distance approx. 13 kilometres, some 250 metres climbing including some steep steps in the Alfred Nicholas Gardens. Grade 3 (medium)
BYO lunch, daypack, water, snacks, wet weather gear.
“In every walk in Nature one receives far more than he seeks. Take a walk to feed the soul.” (John Muir)
