A Brief Photo Meditation on the Sacrament Rooted in Place

Two weeks ago, we'd have been looking at this landscape as we drove from Key West back to the tip of the Florida peninsula:

A year and two weeks ago, we'd have been in a very different landscape, the desert southwest:

How does landscape change our theology?  I think of how the desert has shaped Christianity:

What would the Psalmist praise if the view had been different?

How would our sacraments be different had our first Christians been surrounded by a different sea?

Or maybe the sacraments would be the same.  Maybe the emphasis on water (Baptism) and bread and wine (the Eucharist) speaks to a more essential something out of our shared humanity.
