Church of the woods


Time for Sunday worship.


Time to connect with the Divine.


Time to be inspired.


To feel awe.

Meeting neighbors in the Church of the Woods

To experience communion.

The sermon speaks of life's challenges

To feel connected to all precious life.

See you next Sunday? How about tomorrow instead?

Passing the peace with you.  Blessings, all.

    The final photograph is my absolute favorite. I taught Reiki Level 3 today – the final picture seemed like a benediction on the day. Thank you.

    Never having been truly a part of organized religion, this is one church I would enjoy. I feel more connected and at peace in nature than anywhere else.

  10. absolutely the BEST….I was expecting a little church, however you showed me a Divine Huge church……I would like to visit……I wonder if my GPS could find it….

  11. Blessings to you too, Kathy.

    This is a church I would happily visit every day. 🙂

    Kathy: You and Emily Dickinson know about such things.

    Here’s Emily’s thoughts:

    Some keep the Sabbath going to Church by Emily Dickinson
    Some keep the Sabbath going to Church —
    I keep it, staying at Home —
    With a Bobolink for a Chorister —
    And an Orchard, for a Dome —

    Some keep the Sabbath in Surplice —
    I just wear my Wings —
    And instead of tolling the Bell, for Church,
    Our little Sexton — sings.

    God preaches, a noted Clergyman —
    And the sermon is never long,
    So instead of getting to Heaven, at last —
    I’m going, all along.
    -e. dickinson

    Thank you, all. It was a delight to join with you in worship. 🙂

  15. Cindy Lou says:

    I attended that church in my own corner yesterday – a joyous blessing to be able to run laughing with Kenzie through the leaves, to walk through the golden late son with Jen and Ricky, to sit by the fire with Johnny and Ben…..amen and amen. Life is indeed good!

  16. Kathy says:

    Glad you enjoyed your day in church with family…

  17. Robin says:

    Peace and blessings to you as well, Kathy.

    Thank you for sharing your day in church. I am attending a similar church on a daily basis. It is in all ways, divine. 😀

    (I thought of Emily Dickinson as well when I read this.)

    Beautiful. And peace to you.

    Oh! Liz Story the pianist has a piece called Church of trees, I believe. Do you know it?

  20. Elisa's Spot says:

    Thank you ever so much Kathy for getting the link to the most beautiful song. I was mid creativity this morning and thought to come back to it and got lost. My inner flame is answering so brightly to it, that I have tears of joy!

  22. I, too, thought of Emily Dickinson’s poem when I read this post. 🙂 Beautiful thoughts and images, Kathy…

Thank you for reading. May you be blessed in your life...may you find joy in the simple things...
