The Vision Matters
Moving into the future with the Ranch, our task is to improve the functional aspect of the site which will provide a solid foundation and resulting ability to reach a broader community. If we can create a greater opportunity for people to benefit from access to nature, wholesome food and a nurturing place, we will succeed and hold true to our mission as we move into the future. The Ranch offers spiritual and physical refreshment to a more diverse population that goes beyond what we may find on a resort vacation or a walk. This means true refreshment that leads to a renewed sense of inner purpose, to a timely change, to a new endeavor. That’s the mission of The Bishop’s Ranch and that is what has been happening here since 1947 and that is what, with your help, will continue far into the future even more effectively and for even more people. The call is to share the inspirational views of valleys and hills, the gracious older buildings, the blooming, informal gardens, the shade and solidity of a thick limbed oak tree, the friendly people, healthy food, and hymns sung together in the sheltering chapel. The call is to share experiences with the story written or the painting made, and most of all, the land that has been set aside for a special purpose, set aside by far-seeing people for the benefit of all, where nature works with healing power. Let us continue this vision of renewal of mind, body and spirit, for the future of the Ranch and the greater, diverse community in our neighborhood. To prepare the Ranch to serve we need your help, and with your help we will accomplish more as we move into the future.
