Our Story

What is it to see? For those of us born with the gift of physical sight the temptation is great to take that extraordinary gift for granted. We see everything around us and by habit often see nothing that matters and nothing of meaning. By our apathy and lack of attention, we are effectively blind by default.

There are more than 1000 uses of the word ‘see’ in Scripture, and nearly 500 for the word ‘look.’ When the word ‘look’ is used a command or as an act, it is with the meaning to ‘apprehend’ and often to assess judgement. To see is to perceive and understand significance and true meaning. Both words require the use of more than our eyes. Both require engagement with the Spirit to see as we are made to see. Yet in faith and obedience we can ask for the gift of seeing rightly and we can in obedience practice seeing till we get better at it.  

We exercise the holy gift of looking – bringing observation to bear with our faculty to reason and assess – when we “see” and acknowledge the identity and purpose of another. To cultivate the capacity of seeing is to apprehend the invisible present everywhere with the visible.  

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part;
then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.”
~ 1 Corinthians 13.12


What is

"Like it or not, we either add to the darkness of indifference and out-and-out evil
which surrounds us, or we light a candle to see by."

— Madeleine L'Engle

The Art of Flower Portraiture

I Am Dragon is an exquisite re-telling of the Beauty and the Beast fable, this time through a Russian perspective. This is without a doubt, one of our favourite films for this past year, and I suspect, will be for years to come. As recommended, we watched it in the original Russian with subtitles the first time through. The cadence of the language is one of this film’s many beauties along with the stunning photography, costuming, music, and acting. This is NOT a film to watch with children, as there are elements that would be quite scary for them, but it will be enjoyed by adults who can appreciate the nuances of such a fine telling of an old story.

good. true. beautiful.
