Fire, Water and Worship
Have you ever taken a moment to imagine how much fire impacts your life, everyday? Because we do not see fire around us, it is often times forgotten how critical it is and how much we absolutely depend on it, for if we didn’t have fire, our entire planet would become a frozen wasteland in a mere 8 minutes. Like the fire from the sun warms the earth, provides photosynthesis for plants, and provides needed light, so too our Father and Creator is the ultimate Light. The use of fire in the gardens is designed to bring an awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, as well as remind us of the purification process that it provides as seen in the scriptures in reference to a refiners fire. Visit the Eternal Flame, established to be a reminder of the never-ending presence of God actively at work in our lives, and to daily purify ourselves before the very one who created it – God.
Water is one of the key essences required to sustain life. When God created the world it was formless and void, covered with water. When God completed His creative acts water was still an essential component with two thirds of our planet still covered by it. Having been made in the image of God it is interesting to know that we too are comprised of two thirds water. The truth is, in water we find: life, reflection, relaxation, cleansing and power. It is perceived as a form of burial in baptisms; yet, life to those who drink it. In the Gardens, you will find water features throughout your journey to help remind us of the importance that God placed on this important component of creation. As you meander through the property, introspectively reflect at the different areas to see how this might positively affect your life. If you come expecting you may just leave changed through the complex simplicity of water.
Every aspect of the gardens at The Dream are reflective and point back to the ultimate artist – God. Worship is found in expressions through the stroke of an artist’s brush, the hammering of an artists chisel and even through each praying, singing and mediation back to God.
