Morning Hike at Johnson’s Mound Forest Preserve

Four members took advantage of the beautiful weather on November 17, 2020, National Take a Hike Day, to explore and enjoy Johnson’s Mound loop trail.  This .9 mile trail is paved, has 91 feet elevation gain (the mound) and is rated easy.  While this setting is beautiful in Spring and Fall, it is equally as beautiful now as we begin Advent on Sunday, November 29th.

For you, O Lord, my soul in stillness waits,
Truly my hope is in you.

O Lord of Light, our only hope of glory,
Your radiance shines in all who look to you,
Come, light the hearts of all in dark and shadow. (Refrain)

O Spring of Joy, rain down upon our spirits,
Our thirsty hearts are yearning for your Word,
Come, make us whole, be comfort to our hearts. (Refrain)

O Root of Life, implant your seed within us,
And in your advent draw us all to you,
Our hope reborn in dying and in rising. (Refrain)

O Key of Knowledge, guide us in our pilgrimage,
We ever seek, yet unfulfilled remain,
Open to us the pathway of your peace. (Refrain)
