“For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers.” –Herman Hesse, Bäume. Betrachtungen und Gedichte

Trees inspire awe and wonder at God’s creative grandeur. Their image symbolizes many aspects of the divine nature, becoming touchstones for life-giving reverence. As we listen to the truths they reveal, throughout our time together we will utilize the means of input, discussion, faith-sharing, creative processing, and prayer to nourish the roots of our faith, growing ever stronger.
