I was reading an article about Singapore striving to be a city in a garden versus with a garden. I was intrigued by the difference the prepositions made. I mulled on it for quite a while. I began thinking that I wanted our home to be one not just with a garden, but in a garden. Furthermore, I wanted to look at the outdoors beyond my yard and work to restore churches and communities in a garden, not just with gardens. This seems to fit the vision of the Christian story that begins and ends in a garden and with the restoration of all of creation. So when I say "garden," I mean that in a very big way. I mean the vegetables that grow in our back-back yard and the natives that floursish in our front yard and the miles of trails that I trek through shrub and oak forest and really all of the natural world.
