The Spirituality of Gardening: Finding the Sacred in the Ordinary

George Bernard Shaw wrote, “The best place to seek God is in a garden. You can dig for Him there.” Seeds, soil, plants, water and sun offer insights into the Divine at work in our life. This retreat will focus on the sacred connections found in the ordinary tasks of gardening. Through discussion, reflection, prayer and music we will explore the many ways God speaks to us in a garden.
