Creating a place for reflection and renewal.
The events we offer will relate to one or more of these three areas.
- Nature, by which we mean all of the natural world around us including human interaction, both good and bad.
- Scripture, by which we mean the Christian Scriptures which include the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament.)
- Art, which we define broadly so as to include the disciplines of seeing and expressing in a multitude of styles, materials and levels of ability.
We have had to change the day from Friday to Thursday this week.
We will meet at the Rutledge Bridge. Parking is available on the street or at Bethany Church.
the trees have leaves now
Ducks like this waterway
Lake Monona is nearby
We had perfect weather to face the challenge of the Jennifer Street Bridge. This is a pedestrian bridge. We encountered pedestrians, fisherman, boats, kayaks, ducks, jumping fish, birds and a muskrat in the water.
Work in progress
We are on week Five already! Here are some views. Don’t worry about the one with snow, it was from the distant past.
We will be at the convergence of the Yahara River and Willy Street, where there are actually two bridges, the auto bridge and a rail road bridge converted to bike and pedestrian use. We are close to Bethany Church, and there is a fun story there. The train for years went by the church and over the RR bridges just as the pastor was finishing up the message each and every week.
Near Willy Street
We dodged the rain again and tried out the idea of sketching with a brush. The East Washington bridge is very modern looking so this was a different look. Our text for discussion and thought was Psalm 19. It turned out that the previous Psalm was in the lectionary the following Sunday. No, that was not planned.
