Gracious God of all seasons, we know there is a time for everything. This autumn we need courage to enter into the transformation process.
We too, as all of creation, have seasons of surrender with all the insecurity and risk. Help us to let go as we are invited and to trust that there are many gifts in our surrender.
Give us light and wisdom to know what needs to be left behind and what shall be carried into the future. Grant us insight and vision and keep our hearts from growing cold.
Loving God as you transform nature, transform us, also, by your Holy Spirit.
-Sister Catherine Higgins
As the leaves begin to change, a less visible transformation of monarch butterfies, one of nature’s most important pollinators, has also been happening on our grounds. Watch a roost of monarch butterflies nurtured by Luke Badaczewski, our Director of Grounds and Ecology, move through their four life stages while reflecting on your own transformation process.
