Come Canoe Creation With Us!

Ever felt the fascination of a toad vibrating in your hand? Ever wander through lush spring flowers and feel like there really is hope? Ever wonder about not just the names of trees, but of their character? Ever sit alongside a stream and have cares of this world washed from you? Ever revel in the power of a storm because you know the One that made it? Ever think about spending some time in a quiet place the way Jesus did?
