Issue 30: The Body

Loading...

“Our pulses will hum with Your body and artistry,” writes poet Judith Deem Dupree in the editor’s note to this issue, in which our contributors focus on the unique dilemmas and delights that come with embodiment. To be human is to be amphibious, as C. S. Lewis reminds us, creatures of spirit and creatures of flesh.

Our contributors wrestle with the inherent weakness of the body in the face of car accidents and tragedy; they explore the wonder of the senses, of rainstorms and the taste of sea salt. We meditate on the ruddiness of pomegranates and our shadows on the dunes. And in these stories, we begin to understand what it means to be reflections of the Incarnation.
