Friends of Nature

"Nothing has the potential to move us off dead center quite as powerfully as unexpected encounters in nature. From the meadows to the mountaintops, from the devoted pet to the flight of the bumblebee--the ways that nature nurtures us bring tears to our eyes and resolve to our hearts. And we are often brought into the place of allowing the Spirit to finally get through to us. The possibilities are endless-the motion of the tides, the cleansing of a rainstorm, the dormancy of winter-all remind us that force greater than ourselves turns the clock of this universe. Nature immerses us in that power. "
