Mystery is first in a series of seven images, The Passion of the Earth, a fresh telling of the Creation story. Using poetry and art, theology and science, the series makes new connections between Christian faith and humanity’s relationship with the Earth. Mystery illustrates Sr Teresa Jackson's text:
"In the beginning, perhaps God was lonely, aching to share and express God’s very self in a vast emptiness."
