Edge Outreach

I have a soft spot in my heart for EDGE OUTREACH.   

Edge provides training, equipment, and resources to help mobilize people to address the global need for clean, safe, sustainable drinking water.

When a piece is designated to benefit EDGE, 100% of the sales price will be donated to EDGE to support their efforts.

Mothers of God

Bronze Theotokos with Garnet

This piece was inspired by a season of worship last year in several Eastern Orthodox churches. Theotokos is the Greek title of Mary the mother of Jesus and the word literally means “the one who gives birth to God.”

Consider the words of Meister Eckhart, the 14th century Dominican monk:

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

“We are all meant to be mothers of God. What good is it to me if this eternal birth of the divine Son takes place unceasingly but does not take place within myself? And what good is it to me if Mary is full of grace if I am not also full of grace? What good is it to me for the Creator to give birth to his Son if I also do not give birth to him in my time and my culture? This, then, is the fullness of time. When the Son of God is begotten in us.”

This piece recently sold. It can be recreated on request with Garnets or other stones. Also available in Sterling Silver.

Loaves and Fishes

Studies of corporate management behavior indicate that it requires at least four words of praise to balance every word of criticism directed toward an employee.

David Whyte is a gifted poet who speaks eloquently to the convergence of soul and work. In the following short poem, Whyte reminds us of the necessity of “a good word.”

Loaves and Fishes

This is not the age of information.

This is not the age of information.

Forget the news,
and the radio,
and the blurred screen.

This is the time of loaves
and fishes.

People are hungry,
and one good word is bread
for a thousand.

–David Whyte
