Streams in the Desert by Jennifer Ste Marie

Created as part of the 2017 Season of Creation Initiative at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Kamloops

In this painting, I am attempting to give image to the ideas in Isaiah 35 and 41, in which, in addition to various other promises, God speaks of redeeming the land . . .

"For waters shall break forth in the wilderness, and streams in the desert; the desert shall rejoice and blossom; like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing. I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water."

This is happening in multiple locations around the world where people are caring for creation and employing regenerative agriculture techniques. We just need to open our eyes to see where God is at work.
