Fall Equinox Wild Church: Listening to Creation

Sep 22 , 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Our world is changing, and it impacts not just humans but all that we share this planet with. As a part of Bellingham’s ALL IN for Climate Action Week, Echoes Bellingham is gathering on the land, to listen to the voice of creation. We’ll welcome the Fall Equinox, honor the changing of the season and listen deeply to the earth and the sounds of creation who are crying out in the face of constant climate change. All are welcome to this gathering where the bulk of our time will be spent wandering in the wild. Fall is a season that offers so much to us if we take time to honor the transformation is beckons us into.

We are grateful to once again partner with and join on the land of Stillpoint at Beckside!

As a small action of solidarity we will take a free will offering for the Center for Responsible Forestry, a volunteer run organization that advocates for the conservation of older forests on DNR managed land in Southwest Washington and the greater Puget Sound region. The health and protection of our forests is vital to the flourishing of all.

We encourage wearing layers as well as warm clothing for walking as the weather changes. This is a rain or shine event, so please dress accordingly to the Northwest weather. We will have chairs to sit in around the fire, but please bring warm items (blanket, coats, gloves, etc.) to make yourself comfortable for our reflection times.

Location

Stillpoint at Beckside
1625 Huntley Road
Bellingham, WA 98226

There is ample parking down by the Stillpoint cabin off of Huntley Road. Look for the Stillpoint parking signs by the metal gate, that mark the entrance to the driveway lot. There is a short path that you will take up to the fire pit/gathering area. We encourage a handheld light source (flashlight, headland, lantern) to help guide your path and walk.
