Growing in God's Garden

"Growing in God's Garden"

We shall use the 6-week period of Lent to make our own Lenten/Easter garden. This can be inside in a tray or outside in your own garden.

Each week part of the garden is made, and time spent finding bible connections, prayers, poetry etc and in reflection.


WEEK 2: WATER - 28 February 2021


  • How will your garden thrive? It will need water, necessary for all life.
  • Keep the soil damp. Don’t let it dry out if indoors.
  • A water feature will remind you of the importance of the continuity of life. It will aid reflection. It can be fun.
  • You can make a simple pool by setting a container of water into the soil surface.
  • You may have more ambitious ideas. Do share them.


  • As we look into water sometimes our face is reflected. Don’t turn away. Know that you are valued and loved by God. Feel the warmth and love of Father God.
  • Water cleanses, refreshes, heals. Be drenched by Jesus, who is the water of life. After a shower we can feel invigorated. Be ready to meet the challenge of today with Jesus alongside. Name this to yourself.
  • Children jump in puddles for joy. Teenagers splash each other with shrieks of laughter. Think of the joys in your life and rejoice.


  • Your water reflection may lead you to WRITE or DRAW
  • You might wish to write a DIARY/JOURNAL
  • Take PHOTOS


  • Find and read bible passages that include the subject of water.
  • Find prayers, poetry and prose.
