Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

If you have ever wandered between the Highland Park Bowl and Warner Castle (the Rochester Civic Garden Center), perhaps you have stumbled upon this forgotten sunken garden designed by landscape architect Alling Stephen DeForest (1875-1957).







It is a beautiful terraced series of stairs and landings that navigate the changes in elevation characteristics of the glacial landscape of Highland Park. While some restoration work has been done on this garden, there is still much room for improvement in soil treatment and plantings. To the right, the typical fate of a public space not frequently visited.







The first step in reclaiming this forgotten landscape is the promotion of public awareness and interest. So, if you attend the upcoming Lilac festivities, be sure to visit the sunken garden. Know that it is there.
