The meaning of wilderness

A group of nature-lovers was wondering together: What is it about wilderness that so feeds the human soul?

This Sunday, January 31, our minister, the Reverend Frieda Gillespie, will deliver a sermon on “The Peace of Wild Things.” What is it about wilderness that so feeds the human soul? Why doesn’t it feel the same to everyone? What is the meaning of Thoreau‘s statement “In wildness is the preservation of the world”?

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed at about 11:30 by coffee and fellowship. Child care and religious-education classes are available, and visitors are always welcome.
