“I think gardening is nearer to godliness than theology.  True gardeners are both iconographers and theologians insofar as these activities are the fruit of prayer ‘without ceasing.’ Likewise, true gardeners never cease to garden, not even in their sleep, because gardening is not just something they do.  It is how they live.”

-Vigen Gerona, from The Fragrance of God

Is there a way in which your practice of faith is “never ceasing?”  How is it that you “live”.  What would it look like for you to “grow in faith” today?
