Thank you to all the folks who made Friday night such a great event! There were poems read, toasts given, songs written, led, and plenty of sine, pizza, pies, coffees, laughs and tears shared. I am so grateful to have a group of friends and colleagues forming in Cincinnati. It was a blast! Special thanks to the folks at Moria's Pies, Deeper Roots Coffee, and Jay Valerio for the food and drinks.
I was interviewed by Thomas Turner of Everyday Liturgy, an quarterly journal, about the impact of Wendell Berry on my work as a pastor, community organizer, and artist. I can't believe he used as much of the interview as he did. I'm by no means a literurature critic or expert on Berry. Thanks Thomas for the chance to share my story!
The interview is entitled: The Art of Being in Atlanta
This issue includes other book reviews, several more articles about Berry and great reflection for folks looking to see the beautiful and divine in the everyday. And the previous isue includes interviews with Brian McLaren and a beautiful artful piece by Paul Soupiset.
