Green Pastures, Still Waters
Rev. Helen Nelson
Raytown, Missouri 64133
"Green Pastures, Still Waters" is an exhibit featuring verses from Psalm 23 illustrated with original photographs taken along the Little Blue River by Rev. Helen Nelson. The exhibit also includes text offering an eco-spiritual perspective on best practices in watershed stewardship that can be implemented by individuals and groups.
"Green Pastures, Still Waters" provides a visual pairing of "Psalm 23", a sacred scripture passage that is beloved by persons of multiple faith traditions, with images from the American Heartland that illustrate the references to a serene natural setting and spiritual affirmations of a faithful God who guides, provides, protects, and sustains much as a shepherd cares for a flock of sheep. The exhibit evokes an instinctual understanding of the unique role and responsibility of humans as caretakers of watersheds as a vital restorative resource within Creation.
