“Garden of Hope”
Gardens are often used as metaphors for a peaceful sanctuary; where all is good and right and beautiful – a garden of paradise. For many Christians, salvation is achieved by accepting Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and Heaven is their eternal garden of paradise. What do Unitarians and Universalists say about salvation? What is our garden of paradise?
