We are a grassroots interspiritual community, that is a member of the Wild Church Network; we are located in the Chesapeake Bay watershed on the Eastern Shore, in Berlin Maryland. We meet once a month on lands once inhabited by the Assateague and Nanticoke tribes, and are aware of the wounds deeply held here by the removal of these native peoples from their homeland. We seek healing, and reconciliation of the Earth and all it’s inhabitants. As part of our practice, we honor the turning of the year through the Solstices and Equinoxes allowing us to be more present to the changing seasons on the land and in our own lives.

We gather in nature to hear the Great Mystery’s voice and to feel the Mystery’s presence more fully. We know that creation is sacred and that God speaks through creation in it’s many forms. We engage with creation by praying with the elements of fire, air, water, earth and with all beings, seen and unseen.

Our ministry is Eco-Spiritual, in that we find ways to honor and care for the Earth as the face of the Beloved Mystery, from which all things are born and all things return.
