Travelers love visiting the national parks for its majestic beauty. The best part to enjoy is the nature…it is so natural…it does not put on a show for its guests, but lives out its day-to-day routine without feeling the need to be anything more than what it is. As a Christian leader, what does it mean to be real?
What we say and believe is manifested in what we do.
Discovering why we find beauty in the parks, and the unknown.
Comparing my present situation with past park experiences robs me of the opportunities God has given for me to learn and bless people here and now.
Finding consistency in a place where nothing seems to be.
Starting in a new location means that I need to decide whether I rely on my own strength or on God's power.
