Journeys in the Wilderness

October 20, 2014 - October 25, 2014


Dates: Oct 20, 2014 – Oct 25, 2014

Instructor(s): John Hayden, Nahum Ward-Lev

Price: $365.00 Workshop ID: G13S1034

We will hike in the beautiful regions in and around Ghost Ranch and study journey stories in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures as a means of exploring the metaphor of journey and wilderness in our own lives. You must be able to hike 4-6 miles over rugged, moderately steep terrain at elevations 6,500-11,000 feet.


Ghost Ranch has a long tradition of supporting those in ministry with rich respite and continuing education. In 2013, we will dedicate two special weeks to helping support those in all fields
of ministry (ordained and lay).

Arrival (Monday afternoon) and Departure (Saturday morning) have been established so that those in ministry can leave/return in time for their weekly Worship responsibilities. Some segments will involve the full group (plenaries – processing – Worship). Participants will also choose one focus class where they will receive approximately 20 hours of instruction/ experience to help them in their field of ministry. Come and receive a week of nourishment to help you so you in turn can help others.

Please share with those who work at your church or send your pastor.
