Discovery’s trip to Yosemite really for me firmed up the soul print of our community of faith….We really are a mix of John Muir and John Wesley.

I have found being around a group of thinkers, makers and question askers can bring profound conversation and progress for those who seek it.
One of my favorite moments was watching most of the 26 who had never been to Yosemite,  see the Valley for the first time. That gasp, smile and wide eyed stare is something that will never grow old.

Thank you to all our leaders, guides, planners and all those of you that made it happen for the tribe. Hopefully you found even more than you sought, and you will continue your path towards de-saturation and discovery. Because of you, we sat together the cliffs of Glacier point and had a conversation about “too much information has saturated the soil of people’s souls and the result is that if any new rain of truth cascades upon our mind, it washes off before even soaking in. And this is even the case for the Gospel. This creates barriers for the Kingdom of God to permeate every aspect of your life. Trying to gain a hearing with people to consider any new ideas (even the Gospel), can be tricky because people are saturated and have little bandwidth to soak it in. “

John Muir said; “…full of God’s thoughts, a place of peace and safety amid the most exalted grandeur and enthusiastic action, a new song, a place of beginnings abounding in first lessons of life, mountain building, eternal, invincible, unbreakable order; with sermons in stone, storms, trees, flowers, and animals brimful with humanity.”

John Wesley said;  “I want to know one thing, the way to heaven; how to land safe on that happy shore. God Himself has condescended to teach the way; for this end He came from heaven. He hath written it down in a book. Give me that book! At any price give me the Book of God!”
