Flare is second 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. Flare illustrates Sr Teresa Jackson's text:
"Only God knows why, in a paroxysm of energy, in a single moment, the universe exploded into matter until billions of years, atoms, cosmic dust and divine desire collided to form the blue-green jewel of our home."
