"Experiencing visible results from the earth is immensely gratifying in the fragmentation of today's world.... This retreat, Your Spiritual Garden: Tending to the Presence of God
, is designed to allow you, the retreatant, to discover the life-giving work that can go into daily living for six months or six years when you grow into a deeper relationship with the Master Gardener, God."--from the Introduction
The Old and New Testaments are rich with garden imagery--it is present in creation, the passion, the resurrection and many parts in between. In our daily lives gardens offer us beauty and respite in the hectic and chaotic world around us. Pegge Bernecker's Your Spiritual Garden: Tending to the Presence of God
is a six-week retreat designed to release the inner gardener in all of us. Using Scripture, prayers, meditation, physical and communal activity, as well as participation in the Eucharist, Bernecker teaches us to tend our spiritual garden and ultimately cultivate our relationship with our "Master Gardener."
