Abundance is last 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. Abundance illustrates Sr Teresa Jackson's text:
"Divine tears and anger mix with the scars and blood of a once beautiful, now tortured world. But God still dances abundance in the cosmos and in the hearts of those who cherish this gift of earth and long for its redemption."
