“That certain place … is the firm-rooted place of vision and confidence in a torrential human landscape of changing mores, shattered hopes, tenuous trusts and tentative commitments. It is the place of life-giving clarity in something greater than ourselves, something awesome and enduring enough to keep us anchored and safe in the storm. It is the place, at once inviting and fearsome, where the numinous speaks and we listen–the place of vitality, conversion and missioning forth to live in a world too often profaned by those things that corrupt our humanity.”

Florida Artist & Writer Elisabeth Stevens
