The garden in this institute is a case of continuous transformation. This month, some interesting new developments greet us – vermiculture huts, green houses, vegetable patches, potted colorful flowering plants and ornamental greens (for sale!), improved paths and sitting areas for small group conversations. Some trees’ shady boughs have been trimmed but because of that, ICLA has let more sunshine in. Many do miss the thick green foliage in the garden, but they appreciate the new, “brighter” look.
Speaking of “brightening up,” the workers are in the process of completing the repainting of the Priests’ Building, where the Moraleda Hall is located. We’re looking forward to the next in line!
The Institute for Consecrated Life in Asia (ICLA) is a center for doing theology to revitalize spirituality and mission in emergent churches, particularly in Asia.
