Sometimes, in the Church, we look to Christ as a model for the men, and Mary for the women. While this is true on some level, it is certainly a simplistic analogy. In the last issue, we began to explore the implications of Christ becoming human - not just male - forming a bridge between God and humanity. In our summer issue, we focus on Mary, the Theotokos, as a model for all - women and men - the icon of the perfect human being as humans were created to be.

The remaining issue of this year, Fall 1997, will focus on, "Women in the Early Church." We are in the process now of selecting themes for 1998.

As always, we welcome and encourage submission of articles, poems, and book reviews and are especially interested in hearing about your experience in the Church. Submissions should be typed and double-spaced.
