I AM the long welcome,
the truth beneath your feet,
the wildest wave you’ll ride,
and within you, a party alive.
What does it mean to be church today?
I AM a puzzlement made of a multitude of we are’s.
When at last you know you do not know,
humble acceptance opens a door,
and wisdom enters with our willingness to be led.

“Seven Years of Wonder” is a daily look back at my creative journaling posts since 2014. I began this journey on Feb. 11, 2021, and hope to continue through Feb. 10, 2022. What am I learning about my art and faith journey thus far? What has remained constant? Where have I been changed? How is this impacting present and future art-making?
A deep bow of gratitude to you for keeping me company on this journey.

I love the phrase – the Long Welcome – not a perfunctory “hi” but a welcome that lasts a lifetime and is new every day
