In a process of “Visio Divina”, photos and artwork will prompt our reflections about how creation reveals the presence of the Creative Mystery in our lives. St. Francis saw a familial relationship with creatures and creation. This “garden” harmony gives us a perspective on how to enjoy creation as well as tend it. Participants may want to bring a photo of a special place in nature. A snack and beverage might also be desired.
