Thirty Days Wild
Judith Allinson writes:
Do something outdoors every day in June – this project encouraged by the Wildlife Trusts is for everyone (nearly).
Everyday go outside for a little while – Whether rock climbing or litter picking, meditating or sunbathing – look up to the sky, look round to the trees, look to the moss and seedlings in the cracks in the paving stones. Let’s be aware of the details of our surroundings. Let’s thank God for what we see.
Can you keep this up for everyday for a month?
I look forward to hearing from members of Green Christian and from readers of this website post .. So add your comments at the bottom.
I made have made my personal blog posts on 30Days wild since I discovered it eight years ago.. – I would suggest you make a diary of your own.. (but then writing the posts often takes longer than the walk itself ( stroke – paddle / star gaze / taking a person who needs help out /)
— There are lots of days in June that may encourage you to go out anyway. – but let’s use this discipline to go out for a little while, even on the wet days, and to offer our services who to people who need assistance to go out of doors.
The list of events below are just the one’s I am lucky enough to be involved with or know about: See if you can write your own.
