Activating Our Hope for a Better World

U.P. Wild Delta County Hosts Nature Prayer Gathering in Rapid River

Time and Place:          Sunday, July 17, 3:00 PM, EST

9450  25.75  Lane in Rapid River, Michigan

On Sunday, July 17, UP Wild Delta County will host a Nature Prayer Gathering in Rapid River.  Motivated by an urgent concern for the Earth and its ecosystems, the gathering will focus on recognizing the impact humanity has had on our environment, acknowledging the pain we feel as a result, and activating our hope for a better world.

For those who have never attended one, a nature prayer gathering is a time to meet outside in community, seeking to find the sacred in the natural world.  During this event, you may expect a reflection on nature, the opportunity to go out into the wilderness, a time to share your thoughts and feelings, a moment of prayer, and a closing poem.  Afterwards, there will be community time with tea and snacks.

U.P. Wild Delta County is a non-profit organization that creates opportunities to foster a deeper spiritual connection with God in the outdoors and through virtual nature walks online.  It is a means of encountering the actively Living God, based on shared values of faith, connection, and nature.  It is a community that prays for the healing of the land and our hearts, allowing for open conversation on our culture of consumption, and celebrating our varied personal experiences. 

From the beginning, UP Wild Delta County has been a cross-denominational offering.  Everyone is welcome in this circle just as the trees and birds welcome us to their space.

This event will begin at 3:00 PM EST and should last around 45 minutes.  The location is 9450 25.75 Lane Rapid River, Michigan, 49878.
