Notes from my Knapsack – Newark Central 7-10-13
We're going to take a hike through the Bible the next two Saturdays!
No, you won't have to climb mountains or go twelve miles, but there is some actual walking involved. A few of you asked about the possibility of some summertime "Scripture walks," and I loved the idea.
The first is this Saturday, July 13, at Dawes Arboretum. We'll start at 9:30 am at the picnic shelter on the southern edge of the main parking area (Dawes is off of Rt. 13 south of Newark, enter, go through the gateway, and drive past the Visitors' Center on your right, then turn left into the large parking area and go to the back of it for our starting point).
Starting with Psalm 8 & 19, we'll cover a few miles of trail, pausing to reflect on Ezekiel 17, Matthew 13: 31-32, & Revelation 22:2. We'll be done by noon!
Then on July 20, the next Saturday, we'll shift from "The Bible & Nature" to "The Bible & the City," meeting in our own parking lot at 9:30 am and taking a walk down Hudson Ave., Mt. Vernon Rd., and looping over to Woods and back to the church. As we walk, we'll consider Psalms 46 & 87, Isaiah 58:12, Nehemiah 3, and Revelation 21.
Get out your Bible and comfortable walking shoes, and come join us in a moving time of study!
In grace & peace, Pastor Jeff
