The garden will continue to thrive, commemorating those who have influenced the life of the church. The wall surrounding the garden is in memory of our members who died of HIV-related diseases.

The Japanese Garden requests the viewer's time-time to look, to reflect, to imagine, and to listen. "Each plant, stone, area, and space has meaning. It is a symbolic representation of all the wildness of nature, all elements balanced in the total effect of quietude and repose." [from Marie Sinsabaugh's "The Japanese Garden"]
