Spring 2019

Spring Issue carefully considers the temple as women discuss recent changes in beautiful and profound ways. Includes Kathryn Knight Sonntag discussing “The Mother Tree: Understanding the Spiritual Root” and Jody England Hansen considering “Women and the Temple.” It also presents a special interview with Maxine Hanks. This issue also includes nine poets such as Rachel Steenblik, Mette Harrison, Linda Kimball, and Teresa Wellborn. So much goodness to be found!
