Tucked away in the shadow of the mountain, two small buildings stand at the foot of the water, whitewashed witnesses to the serenity of the space around them. The stillness is palpable, almost reaching through the photograph to still the viewer. As we close our eyes and imagine the wind whispering through the turning trees, we listen too, for the voice of the Spirit, ministering to our soul.
In a secular age, there is a push to strip the public square of all signs of faith. But freedom of religion and freedom of expression are the bare basics for a people to call themselves free. Convivium is a voice for the rightful role of faith and for people of faith in our pluralistic society.
