OUR HELP IS IN THE NAME OF THE LORD, MAKER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH – GREEN ANGLICANS HIKE
On the 19th of October 2019, Green Anglicans had a hike at the Tygerberg nature reserve. 55 people in total attended the hike. The hike was lead by Neil Adams. The hike was 8kms long. There was a variety of age groups at the hike, from kids to teenagers to adults.
During the hike Bino led us on a meditation on Psalm 124 “our help is in the name of the Lord, Maker of heaven and Earth”. The mediation was mainly for reflecting on the year 2019, goals that we set ,achieved and failed to achieve. Bino highlighted that we should take our “failures” as challenges and not as the end of the road. Then we divided into pairs to pray one for the other.
The hiking trail had different features such as a variety of plants and flowers, different types of birds. On the hike people saw egg shells and birds hunting for their prey. It was refreshing to be at the nature reserve and appreciate Gods creation, the peaceful nature and the greenery at the mountain and surrounding area.
