Side By Side

Photographer Hayley Lockrem captures the essence of Canadian communities of faith, standing side by side, facing the future in faith and friendship.

Theologian C.S. Lewis speaks of the power of friendship in his book The Four Loves, describing the posture of friends as being "...side by side, absorbed in some common interest." The power of photographer Hayley Lockrem's photograph lies in her ability to capture an array of Canadians facing the future side by side, bound by a common commitment to their faith tradition and cultural heritage. As we look towards the future, may our history and our commitment to transcendence be the ground beneath our feet and light our path forward.
