“Stations of Creation” began as a project of a science-student-turned-seminarian, as I completed a science degree at one Boston-area institution and began a theology degree at another. Drawing on Matthew Fox’s framework of Creation Spirituality that considers gain, loss, generation, and transformation, I correlated these with similar formative processes at work in the area selected. The walk begins at The Old South Church in Boston’s (now filled-in) BackBay. Historical and cultural aspects of the area are also highlighted in the walk.
“Stations of Creation” — A Walking Tour of Creative Processes in Boston’s BackBay, examines varieties of creation operant in the formation of New England. In four city blocks and approximately 45 minutes, you will travel through about 700 million years.
