Bishop Graham is a long term friend of Quiet Gardens, having helped start The Cloister Garden at Holy Trinity Church, Middlesborogh – and he spoke at our Annual Gathering in 2018, which you can listen to below. He is also author of Places of Enchantment – Meeting God In Landscapes.
“The natural environment of gardens with their mixture of tending, cultivating and sanctified neglect, are places that draw me into the heart of God. They are places where I can dwell deeply, through being in the slip-stream of prayer, contemplation and renewal, and find life again in all of its abundance. Through the work of the Quiet Garden Movement, I pray that this will also be true for many other people, and I remain grateful to those who open their gardens so that others can slow down and rest in God’s abundant love in Jesus.”
