    In this activity, you will take a walk/hike/roll/ride/drive together with friends or family or friends who are like family, paying special attention to certain parts of nature that are often overlooked (dirt, rocks, and soil), but which play prominent roles in the stories of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter.

    † Dinner Stones with Butter Board

    Build a Butter Board appetizer for your Easter dinner, the bread-n-butter of charcuterie-style boards. While you wait for the yeast in the Trinity Dinner Stones to take action, whip up three flavored butters to serve alongside your fresh rolls. Be sure to allow enough time to thaw the frozen dough the night before you bake, soften the butter before you mix it up into delicious spreads, and chill a serving platter in the refrigerator for one hour before spreading the flavored butters on top.
