In our first feature, Donald Phillips speaks through the voice of Psalm 62, as he invites reflection on the solitary nature of suffering. Then, we are treated to the luminous poetry of lay wordsmiths Kelly Milne, Leona Hiebert Rew, and Carla Worthington. This issue also features photography from Kevin Grummett and Nikaela Peters. Later on, Theo Robinson writes about the joys of music-making in the midst of stress and loss. And, in via media, Alana Levandoski writes about the language of praise.
