2019 Northern Ireland RIOT 2 Update 4
Posted: Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Tuesday in Ireland gave us the best fish and chips on the island. MOST of our group absolutely loved dining al Fresco on the Irish staple while a few non-fish eaters couldn’t handle the hype. But those of us in the know recognize that the minority missed out.
After lunch, we spent the afternoon in Tollymore Forest. These magical, ancient woods were near the childhood home of CS Lewis. He spent many boyhood days playing and imagining in the woods, so it’s no surprise that they would end up inspiring his vision of Narnia. The invitation was simple: take advantage of this “thin space” however you’d like. Walk. Hike. Climb. Reflect. Pray.
Engage trips focus more on who we are than what we do. And our afternoon in the woods gave us a chance to look around at what God has done while focusing inward on who He is shaping us to be.
