You’d think I’d start inviting people to hike and pray where I work. York River State Park is an excellent place to explore and seek peace in mind. I will take this ministry there soon in some way or another.
But, I want to begin at a good little trail in my back yard. Wahrani is just below West Point in New Kent. It used to be the nature trail for the Chesapeake Corporation. According to Hiking Upwards, the origin of the name is a little interesting. I like the ravines and am a sucker for little non-tidal streams. The nearly 3.5 miles do not have the most impressive views. But, this is a good place for locals to walk, pray, and feel free to ask a question or two about Orthodox Christianity and how I came to the faith.
No, I will not hold a gun to anyone’s head and expect a conversion. Hey, if you want to bring your Bible, devotional booklet, prayer book, or whatever from your particular denomination and faith tradition, go ahead. I am only inviting people to walk and pray in the natural world. If interested, call or send an e-mail.
