#373 Is this true? Do gardeners have more #hope than non-gardeners? A strange question perhaps…I guess what I mean is do those with a #deeperconnectionwithnature have a deeper connection with the divine, and a greater sense of hope as a result? When I’ve had a garden, I’ve found it incredibly therapeutic to spend time working and being within it. I think I do find a deeper connection with God in the #naturalworld as well. I’m reminded of a sermon I preached last year for #lammas in which we thought about farmers as those whose livelihood relied on them connecting   with, and listening for the heartbeat of God as they worked the land…what is it you do that helps you to hear the #heartbeatofgod and have a greater #senseofhope?
