In the spectacular winter setting of Tall Timber Ranch in the North Cascades, at the edge of Glacier Peak Wilderness, we will leave all electronic media behind and spend three weeks living in community together and learning more about God, ourselves, and our beautiful world. We will gather around a wood stove to discuss Scripture, science, ecology and environmental ethics. We will learn to cross-county ski. We will study the natural history of the Northwest and the local ecology of the White River Valley, not just sitting in the lodge but through outdoor exploration on ski and snowshoe. We will play in the snow. We will drink lots of hot chocolate. And we will join together in daily worship and reflection as we contemplate the glory of God’s creation and redemption in Christ and what it means for how we live in the world today.
