Spirituality of Gardening with Christine Sine
One of the positive impacts of our current situation is that people are taking to gardening again and I know that many here are finding that this is a place of renewal, refreshment and intimacy with God. In some ways I think that gardening is the ultimate worship experience. I read about the story of God in the Bible but in the garden, I see it lived out. Every time I plant a seed, bury it in the ground and watch it spring into life, I feel I have entered into the life, death and resurrection of Christ. It is so hope giving. In response to this trend, I have recently created an online course called The Spirituality of Gardening.
This course includes video sessions with me, downloads of prayers and handouts for each session. There will also be Walk Through the Garden videos with guest gardeners; including Mother Danae Ashley who told me that she has been wowed by the experience.
