Laughter is third 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. Laughter illustrates Sr Teresa Jackson's text:
"And God let forth a laugh that shook the cosmos for it was wonderful and very, very good."
