You could call it unscientific, but encounters with God often occur when we enter into a place of pure beauty and solitude with nothing but silent still waters and the wildlife surrounding us. Such times yield moments of pure joy, and as we allow God to speak to us through His creation, we become renewed. We reflect on our past experiences where we seize the moments when we encounter beautiful views, serene moments and inspirational observations. For Doug it was a garden of Eden experience in Kauai and northern Michigan, for Rich, his Grand Canyon experience and Glacier National Park.
