A group of Squarefish youth went to The Wildside Experience for an Advent Adventure. After some games we walked to Dunkerswell Abbey and made some night lanterns and talked about the Christmas story. We then walked up to the woods and had a still sit in the woods. Richard dropped us off on our own in the dark and we had a chance to reflect on light and darkness and listen for night animals. Richard then picked us up and we walked in silence to the campfire where we shared our experiences and melted marshmallows over the fire. Many of us faced our fears and learned about trusting other people and God as we walked through the woods in the darkness.
