Returning from the Okanagan on a summer afternoon, I witness this luminous sky. I capture this image through the windshield while the colours keep changing moment by moment. This is Presence profound. As I marvel at the altering hues, we are driving into the horizon, steady and paced, moving with the landscape. Wheels are turning. Here is a glowing and growing luminescence. There is movement everywhere. And while riding on this highway of Light, I just keep looking UP.
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.
