Introduction


The world’s religious traditions have told some of our most enduring stories. These myths and parables have remained relevant for thousands of years, shaping our histories and identities. Yet, like so many of our landscapes today—ecological, political, social—the landscape of faith is shifting. Institutional religion is in many places failing to respond to the needs of the present moment; entrenched structures aren’t adapting quickly enough to guide us through an uncertain future.


Traditional religions have failed us in many ways, and they have failed us because of their capitulation to patriarchy, because of their capitulation to heteronormativity, their capitulation to capitalism.

In an age of heightened individualism and consumerism, where can we turn for meaning that is rooted in care for place and for each other?

Is reclaiming faith an act of resistance?

What are the teachings and core truths that are still alive and waiting to be named, to be recognized?


Mere sitting at home and meditating on the divine presence is not enough for our time.

Thomas Merton


Drawing from a wide variety of traditions and perspectives, this issue explores the questions, practices, and journeys that faith invites us into.

The first step toward creating some way out of our dilemma may involve allowing our sense of certainty itself to unravel.

George Prochnik


Join us on the Shikoku pilgrimage, a road trip with Christian mystic Thomas Merton fifty years after his death, an encounter with the bristling skin of an elephant, an exploration of the holiness of death, in a discussion on radical dharma, and much more.
