This issue is SOLD OUT in print form, but it is still available here in digital form.
Ruminate’s existence is tenuous, but we believe our existence is worth fighting for and worth celebrating. And what a celebration this issue is, full of vibrant confessions of all kinds-of faith and doubt, of brokenness and beauty, and even a poet’s confession of one of her life’s greatest delights: “…when a redbird’s wing/brushed my cheek as she took flight.”
Such acts of intimacy and honesty deliver a kind of universal pause and send us all searching for our own confessions that need sharing or professing, our own redbirds to brush our cheeks.
