Sacred Grounds Visioning Workshop
Sunday, May 19, 2019 at 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm
Landscape Architect Roxanne Hamilton will lead us in a special all-parish workshop to brainstorm design ideas for our external sacred spaces. Elements revealed in small group discussions will help her discover what might be incorporated into a master design. This is our opportunity to dream and hope together about what our courtyard, our reflecting pool garden, and other outdoor spaces might become. Some background: In the past year, we began exploring with both church architect Mark Nelson and landscape architect Roxanne Hamilton the feasibility of enhancing our internal and external spaces. Roxanne has been helping us explore the potential of our grounds for redevelopment with special emphasis on the Courtyard and Reflecting Pool areas. It is our goal to create an Outdoor Columbarium in the Reflecting Pool garden and create a variety of outdoor Sacred Spaces for our church and neighboring community. In Roxanne’s’ words, “We envision a place to encounter the Holy Spirit through meeting with each other, through our involvement with the natural world as part of creation, and through communication with the mystery of the Holy Spirit that informs our life.” Questions?
