This week and next I’m celebrating the one-year anniversary of the relaunch of joewebbwrites.com by preparing to unplug and go off-grid for a few days of much-needed backcountry therapy.
I hope you’ve enjoyed engaging with my weekly posts, and I look forward to the next year of creating meaningful conversation around issues of faith, justice, art, and culture.
I invite you to take a quick 5 minutes to view the video above from the Seneca Creek Backcountry in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia (please excuse the 2013 iPhone camera quality). Enjoy a few moments of Zen and reflect on your own journey of the past 12 months as we prepare for the next phase of our pilgrimage together.
I’ll see you back here again on Sept. 15. Meanwhile, you’re welcome to catch up on some of the articles you may have missed…here are the top 5 most popular posts from the past year:
