Encountering God in Creation Series Logo

For many, Creation is a pathway to encountering the Holy. Standing on a distant mountaintop or watching a butterfly in your own backyard…something about the beauty we see touches us deeply, inspiring and opening us to the Love and Grace that surrounds us in those sacred moments.
