PREVIEW: on recovery, repair, and reconciliation

Mess, brokenness, failure. These are realities that exist along- side the tidy, functioning, successful bits of life that we often prefer to focus on. Involving ourselves in broken, messy situations is hardly ever easy or cost-free. But choosing to be part of the work of recovery is an act of hope. The repairer starts with two things: what currently is, and a vision of what could be. The stories in this year’s magazine are about making that vision a reality.
