Welcome to the Church of Lost Walls
primal speech: praying with the creation | Sunday, February 24th at Roxborough Park | 1:15 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for an experience of “wild worship” that returns the practice of prayer to its primal roots: a life-creating expression of the Creation! Experience the rich fullness of your five senses, the freedom of being fully alive to your own emotions through bodily movement and creative expression. Participate deeply with God and reconnect with the natural world opening your life to the grief and joy, memory and imagination that is waiting to be lived. Through nature-based contemplative practices that draw upon the wisdom of sacred narratives and older traditions, we will cultivate a deeper connection with nature and our own wild wholeness. Take a small step across the threshold toward a culturally creative vision for life. Renew your sense of hope and courage to face our current spiritual and ecological crises together, rooted in kinship and community with one another, the wild earth, and the great mystery we call God.
There is a $7 entry fee for parking. Click for directions: Roxborough State Park | 4751 Roxborough Dr, Littleton, CO 80125
Church of Lost Walls is a living expression of church seeking to journey beyond our walls into wild enchanting thresholds where nature, spirituality, and life meet in deep Conversation and sacred community for the cultivation of greater wholeness and service to the world.
We are not normal church happening outside, our dream is to participate in and partner with creation through learning, worship, meditation and prayer. Through nature-based practices that draw upon the wisdom of sacred narratives and older traditions, we seek to cultivate nature connection and personal wholeness to inspire and guide one another into a culturally creative vision of life within our expanding circles of community, culture, the wild earth, and the great mystery we call God.
This culturally creative vision can be discovered in the depths of our unique Imago Dei (Gen 1), what poet David Whyte refers to as the “truth at the center of the image you were born with,” and Bill Plotkin refers to as the soul-image. In the teachings of Jesus, it is the “treasure hidden in the field,” what poet Mary Oliver calls your “one wild and precious life”.
