Mark Schmanko

My point is that whatever is real and compelling about god-talk, it's approached far more adequately with plural language, plural deities, plural visions, even plural realities, all of which can expand our spiritual imagination to better understand and engage religion and spirituality in its wild, deep and powerful diversity today.

Culture Is Only A Thin Apple Peel Over A Glowing Chaos

Lena Hades | Posted 04.04.2016 | Arts
Lena Hades

All great artists which I call artistocrats have a constant lifelong desire to communicate vitally important messages. But sometimes a fervent desire to be understood and to convey an important message looks like a declamation of a Shakespeare's Sonnet to a hungry dog.

In the last few days, Paris has been in the news and on our minds for all the wrong reasons... tragic reasons. And still, there is no doubt that with its indomitable spirit and enduring troves of art and culture, the city -- and France itself -- will overcome.
