God is not “A” being but BEi-ng itself.

My experience with the organized Church is a challenge and a testing ground, not always validating and not always encouraging but it has a valued place in my heart. I try to focus mostly on the way it exposes the great divinity in all of us.

Women's image and voice in the Church

Traditionally there have been too few images of women in icons, too few Orthodox women iconographers, and too few Catholic women who teach, or are recognized as female mystics.
