Memorial Fountain in the reflection pool installed
In Swedenborgian theology, water symbolizes Divine truth which is what enables us to lead creative and useful lives. The triangular shape of the pool symbolizes one of the basic teachings of Christianity: God as a triune being and individuals as having a soul, mind, and body. At night, lights shine up from the fountain waters and cast a blue glow on the trees overhead. The garden between the reflection pool and the Chapel features plantings duplicating the appearance of the floor of a redwood forest, such as azaleas, rhododendron, coral bells, irises, and a variety of ferns.
