The Golden Warbler
With support and encouragement from our friends at Penn State University, our Krislund Camp has received a significant grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service for the habitat development of the Golden Warbler. Over thirty acres of forest land at Krislund will be set aside and specifically protected to encourage the habitat development for this gorgeous, song bird. This is yet another piece in the continuing growth of our Krislund Camp!

Mosaic of Peace April 29 to May 12, 2018
In 2016, I participated on the Mosaic of Peace study tour sponsored by our Presbyterian Peacemaking Program. This was a beautiful, transformative, experience for me in two ways.On one hand, visiting and experiencing the places of Jesus was a deep and abiding joy. This study tour visits all the great places in the life of Jesus. This experience will deepen your spiritual life and truly make the Gospel stories come alive. On the other hand, this study tour also immersed us in the trauma and pain of the Middle East from the perspective of the Christian Church. There are still Christians in Palestine who are our brothers and sisters in Christ. We need to support them and know their story.
I hope to participate on the Mosaic of Peace study tour again in 2018. I hope to be a small group leader for a group from our Presbytery on the tour. Please consider join using. The details of this study tour are now available at http://www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/peacemaking/mosaic/.
