Season of Creation: “Listening to Creation” in Nazareth’s Woods

Posted by Carolyn Cromer

September 2, 2022

This Season of Creation, we are raising up the voices of those creatures and people whose voices too often go unheard. Some of those voices are in Nazareth’s spring woods, where ephemeral wildflowers litter the woodland floor and tadpoles emerge from their eggs. Join Carolyn Cromer, Kelly O’Mahony, SCN, and Julia Gerwe in this short video as they step into this corner of God’s creation. To watch the video, click the “play” arrow below.

    This reminds me of trips with Sr. Ellen Jane Dullea to study Spring wildflowers in Nazareth woods. She taught us such wonderful appreciation of the beauty of God’s creation.

    Thank you for such a lovely, educational and contemplative loving gaze of Spring in our own backyard! We are so grateful to be stewards of such beauty, and diversity. May we tread lightly, and gaze with awe and wonder of God’s creativity!
