Story & Experience

Oak wilt has been devasting the oak trees that so many of us in the Texas Hill Country identify with and love. Our trees at High Hope are no exception, and now our most beloved oak, Grandmother Oak is besieged. About one-fifth of her is still holding on to life and leaves. We gathered to pray for the life that is still in here, and begin to see the beauty and love in her next stage as a giving tree.
