THIN PLACES AND WIDE OPEN SPACES


The latest edition of BACKPACKER magazine has a very interesting article regarding Evangelicals and the environment.

If  you are a Christ follower and an outdoor lover you might what to pick up the March issue and read the “Hike Pray Protest” article.
This movement is resonating with a lot of people who are in the Evangelical ranks.

I was first introduced to the phrase “Thin Places” in Mark Batterson’s Book Wild Goose Chase.

Now I’m reading about it in BACKPACKER magazine.

The early Celtic Christians had a name for places where heaven and earth seem to touch.  A place in nature  where the spiritual and the natural came together….They called them “thin places.”  The place were the wall between you and God more permeable and thinner.
I totally agree with my Celtic forerunners.

Anyway read the article for yourself and see if you have a kindred spirit with the author.

The LORD God put the man in the Garden of Eden to take care of it and to look after it. Genesis 2:15
