Lent Reflection: Trees

2nd March 2022

“The Tree of Knowlede” – this bronze sculpture by Joe A Tyler stands before majestic Catalina Mountains, California, and welcomes visitors at the Oro Valley Public Library.

According to the Book of Genesis there are two trees in the middle of the Garden of Eden, the tree of life and the tree of all knowledge. It is eating from the latter that makes us what we are as humans.

Knowledge, like air, is vital to life. Like air, no one should be denied it.” Alan Moore, V for Vendetta 

The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out. Proverbs 18:15
