Balance is fourth 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. Balance illustrates Sr Teresa Jackson's text:
"And so it began, the cosmic dance of life and death, creation and destruction; for from the death of one came the life of another and each was food for the other. And still it was good."
