Come to the garden

by Rob Park

An Easter Garden brought focus and deeper meaning to worship at St. George’s Georgetown this Lent and Easter.

Our first Easter garden, designed by Janet Armstrong and Sue Graham, was a powerful addition to worship.

In Lent, the garden was dotted with succulent plants and decorated with stick crosses and a number of stones.

At Easter, small flowering succulents were added; the round stone was rolled away from the tomb-like stone.

Many parishioners were moved by its symbolic meaning and delighted by its enhanced beauty on Easter Day.
