THE CHURCH AT 7,200 FEET

Tomorrow is Sunday and I will have two services @ two locations for anyone who wants to attend either.

The first service is rather conventional, traditional and has seats –  it starts @ 10:00 am and is held @ 1455 Willow Creek road here in Prescott Az.

The Second site is @ 7,200 feet at the top of Granite basin and will not be typical, traditional or conventional….It has no seats but a really good view.

Here is a pic of our location of our Sunday afternoon worship service. (no fried chicken allowed).

Pretty nice temple  right?

Desire – We are going to meditate on the word  “Selah”  when we reach the top of the peak.

Destination –  The scenic, tranquil, Prescott National Forest. –  We will unplug from the fast-paced life in an effort to slow down, relax, connect with each other and listen for the voice of God.

The “service” won’t be lengthy and we won’t even take an offering…..but we will reflect on some amazingness of God’s handiwork and artwork.

Details – We leave Granite Basin/Iron Springs parking lot at 3:00 and  commute to the trail head area to save on parking fees.

The eight mile hike round trip will require you to be self contained with plenty of water and snacks. (remember it will be hot in the afternoon.)

The hike is approx two hours up and two hours back.

Here is a link to help you with info. regarding the climb and decent.

Close to the meadow on the top of gb.

The back side of granite Basin looking toward willimson valley/Sedona/ Flagstaff…One of my favorite sections of this amazing trail.

The entire afternoon I saw four other humans.

Summed up I say: Scenic time for solitude and Selah.
