Two Book Retreats – the Bridges Class

willybridgeReaders of this blog will have seen posts about the two books of revelation, nature (general revelation) and scripture (special revelation.)  I have started a small side business to promote the idea that we can explore nature artistically and spiritually.  The website is here: Two Book Retreats

Together with an artist, Nancy Macgregor, we will offer the class “Bridges along the Yahara River” which combines learning how to do watercolor sketches with an appreciation of this natural setting in central Madison and an opportunity for spiritual reflection.

Further information is available here – Bridges Class

The Side Rock Cafe – my Smoky Mountain retreat

I have a restful week in the Smoky Mountains as part of a Sabbath Rest gathering.  One of my activities was to stop and look at the world so check out my watercolor sketches here .

This sketch is from along a hiking trail in the Smoky Mountains – I did not get to the big falls, but had a pleasant lunch at my own personal “Side Rock Cafe.”

I plan to do some exploring of this theme here at Fresh Read – while we are not under the legal regulations of the Sabbath, we continue to have the invitation, which we can take at any time where the Lord says, “just stop and spend some time with me, with my words and works.”

If you are in Madison and want to try a local version, Two Book Retreats will be offering a class this June and July along the Yahara River – see the link here.
