In this poem by Rebecca Lauren, a granddaughter recalls a missing family member.
Scripture invites us into a different relationship with our bodies than our Greco-Christian worldviews, a relationship that sees our bodies as intrinsic to a holistic faith. In other words, to be faithful is to view the body as good and as essential to our worship and creaturely existence. For this, our twenty-third issue, we explore how this perspective might in- form our sense of romance and sexuality, our relationship with pain and technology, and the ways our bodies betray us and help us to see the world and God differently.
