Pensive: A Global Journal of Spirituality & the Arts

Pensive Issue 7

Dear Readers,

Exploring spirituality through the literary and visual arts is always a soul-touching endeavor. As we reviewed thousands of submissions from around the world, we observed, appreciated, and ultimately arranged the accepted pieces around seven core spiritual themes. As you read this issue from cover to cover, you will discover themes that often overlap and converse in surprising ways: ecology and the natural world, family and relationships, grief and loss, social justice and the quest for peace, varieties of religion and spirituality, the practice of mindfulness and contemplation, and at the end of it all, the possibility of joy and blessing and gratitude.
