You are invited to join us for a day apart for reflection and renewal. You are encouraged to give yourself the gift of time with a community of support and encouragement as we gather around water to be refreshed. The Presbytery’s next “Sacred Conversations” will be Thursday, July 24th at Magee Marsh from 10:00-2:00, led by Ann Marie Montgomery. We will gather at 10:00 at the Bird Observatory where we will talk about water stories from the Bible and from our lives.
Then you will have a couple of hours to simply be, to be by the water! You can walk through the marsh on the boardwalk, stroll along the lake or sit at the water’s edge. You can read a book, watch the birds, lay in the grass, sit under a tree, or hike a trail. You can decompress, breathe deeply, get in touch with your interior life, and find living water for your soul. At 1:00 we will gather with the picnic lunch you will bring for yourself, break bread together, and then have a short closing worship, to dismiss at 2:00. It is very rustic at Magee Marsh so you will want to bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and it might be a good idea to bring bug spray!
Magee Marsh is located at 13531 West State Route 2, Oak Harbor, Ohio. The attached map shows the location of the Bird Center.
