Several members and friends took their camping trip to Joshua Tree this past week: here are some beautiful pictures and thoughts they had on the trip! Thanks to Herley Jim Bowling and Darya Jones for the beautiful words and pictures.

Joshua Tree is a place of vastness, and yet, closeness. Each year, our church community gathers in this desert. We forge bonds of solidarity amidst the diversity in our life experiences. We come together, gathering around campfires, gazing upon the stars at night, and hiking along often challenging trails. We do so with a sense of unity amongst us; often bringing us together. We make new friends, and we solidify previous connections. We do so in a space of vastness, and we come home, often closer in heart. The desert is a place of reflection, healing, and solidarity
