Calmly plotting the resurrection…
[Writing of his wife Katharine, who was planning the planting of bulbs in her garden even though she knew she likely would not live to see the spring.] There was something comical yet touching in her bedraggled appearance…. The small hunched-over figure, her studied absorption in the implausible notion that there would be yet another spring, oblivious to the ending of her own days, which she knew perfectly well was near at hand, sitting there with her detailed chart under those dark skies in dying October, calmly plotting the resurrection.
One way in which QC Family Tree practices resurrection is by gardening. Our garden is a place of welcome, beauty, and nourishment.
It provides healthy food for our shared meals, a learning and creative environment for our neighbors, and inspiring visuals for everyone who visits.
Please contact Helms if you would like to volunteer, as a group or individually, to help in the garden. You can schedule a time to come out and help or you can participate in one of our group gardening days.
