The view from a mountain’s peak is somewhat humbling. Seeing the terrain of our familiar world stretched out below us, it’s almost as if we could simply reach out a hand and touch it all. We’ve gained a new perspective up here, a realization that though we cannot touch the world below, we are still very much a part of it. When we descend, we enter back into reality with a new perspective from this sacred space that we didn’t have before. This view belongs to all of us.
In a secular age, there is a push to strip the public square of all signs of faith. But freedom of religion and freedom of expression are the bare basics for a people to call themselves free. Convivium is a voice for the rightful role of faith and for people of faith in our pluralistic society.
