Issue 16: Mapping This Place


Art maps our lives. Remembering is a calling, and therefore, so is mapping. How powerful it is when we attentively remember the past and all the provisions we’ve been given! We need the monuments, like Joshua’s pile of rocks in the Jordan, so that in that in the future, when we’re asked, “What do these stones mean?” we can answer.

In this issue, our contributors build monuments on rooftops, in Sri Lankan clinics, on salted sidewalks, and on the back pages of children’s Bibles. They spread the maps of their lives before us, pointing us toward the landscape and histories we all share.
