Faithwalking 2019 

What is Faithwalking: It is our deep conviction that Jesus demonstrates the fully human, fully alive life to which we are called as Christ's disciples. As you participate in our ongoing spiritual formation process, you will discover your true self that is full of passion and desire to make an impact in the world. You will receive teaching, coaching, and support as you identify and remove the obstacles that stand in the way of living life as your true self. Our core work centers around helping you and those in your community to master the work of spiritual formation, inner healing, emotional transformation, and missional living.

.And it was Good:  There is still time to register for most of our weeks at Camp Fowler. Our summer theme is dealing with how caring for creation is rooted in our sacred texts. From the beginning stories in Genesis, to the good news of Jesus - the 'light of the world', to the ending dreams of Revelation of God making 'all things new', we find again and again a call to be present in this world and to do the things to care for all creatures great and small.
