LOST CITY NATURE WALK

SAT. SEPT. 26 / 11:30 AM / IN PERSON

Our popular hike will happen again! We will begin & end our hike with a short reflection or prayer as we take a short walk through "Old Towne" Negaunee. We will climb staircases that lead to non-existing homes and see how nature has reclaimed this space. For many of us who grew up  around the U.P. this may be actually be your first time going into the caving grounds- so come learn some local history! We must adhere to safety guidelines so all participants must pre-register by sending an email to lanni@upwild.org. You will also be given instructions on where to gather. IF RAIN cancellation: take the virtual walk found here.

LIVE FROM THE LAKE

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2 / 6:30PM / YouTube LIVE

We will sit (virtually) on the shores of Superior at Little Presque Isle with the  Huron Mountains, Garlic Point & Granite Loma in the distance.  We will open with quiet meditation (to hear the sounds of the great lake) and hear the voices of the Northern Great Lakes Water Stewards; a faith-based voice which monitors, protects and santifies the lakes and rivers of the U.P.  * We will be offering this again IN PERSON based on interest- if you would attend an in person prayer gathering message lanni@upwild.org.

FALL COLORS HIKE

SAT. OCTOBER 10 / 11:30 AM / IN PERSON

LEAFERS UNITE!  People travel from afar to witness the beauty of the changing of seasons in the Upper Peninsula- we get an insiders view of the majestic Huron Mountains with a guided hike and some meditative stops to enjoy the beauty and wonder of God's creation. Intermediate level hike with some hill climbing involved. We must adhere to safety guidelines so all participants must pre-register by sending an email to lanni@upwild.org. Location on where to meet will also be given once registered- it will be off Highway 550 towards Big Bay.

CENTERING PRAYER

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23 /  6PM ZOOM + FACEBOOK LIVE

A time set apart for community and centering prayer. Hosted by U.P. Wild and guided by Gabriela (Rise, Philadelphia) and Lanni (U.P. Wild, Michigan). Centering prayer is a Christian practice or discipline, that goes as far back as our Desert Mothers & Fathers. It’s also called Contemplative prayer, or Christian Meditation.  We will meet on Zoom while also going LIVE on facebook. Please email lanni@upwild.org to register for Zoom link to join us "in the room".

LIVE 'FROM DA WOODS'

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30 / 6PM / FACEBOOK LIVE

All Hallows' Eve falls on 31st October each year, and is the day before All Hallows' Day, also known as All Saints' Day in the Christian calendar. The name derives from the Old English 'hallowed' meaning holy or sanctified and is now usually contracted to the more familiar word Halloween. WE WILL broadcast LIVE from da woods sharing some forgotten history and asking YOU to bring your favorite Saint to share and hear about some holy pilgrims to inspire us on our journey.

MACKINAC ISLAND TOUR

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6 / 6PM  / YOUTUBE LIVE

Virtually, we will take a scenic and uniquely one-of-a-kind stroll on Mackinac Island (no cars allowed!). We may have some special friends join us along the road to share some wisdom. This is your chance to take the ferry across the Straits of Mackinac (Michigan) and go back in time (anyone know the movie reference?!) without having to actually take a ferry over.  This is a virtual online event and UP Wild members will be on LIVE with you to share comments and community.

THANKSGIVING CIRCLE

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27 / 6PM / ZOOM + FACEBOOK LIVE

A collaborative prayer circle with children welcome.  The teaching goes, "Blessed be the Peacemakers" not "Blessed be the consumers" so let's not indulge the Black Friday mob but instead gather in the light!  A time to give our thanks for the meager & momentous blessings in our lives- we encourage children to especially share what they are thankful for!  More details to come.
