Grace Millennium, Volume 1: Issue 1 
From the Editor

Grace Millennium reflects a shifting paradigm through the art, interviews, poetry and other writings of Northern California women. In its pages, extraordinary experiences of ordinary women reveal the transformational power of grace in these exciting and challenging times. 
    As a continuation of the publishing project begun over three years ago as Sojourn, both in print and on the internet, we are beginning afresh in the new millennium with an expanded vision and outreach. This endeavor depends on YOU in order to continue and flourish. If you feel part of the Grace Millennium community, now is the time to let us know.  Submit your writings, art and comments; advertise, subscribe, become a sponsor or volunteer. Our plans for an international website opens our invitation for visioning and exchange to men and women from around the globe. 
    This issue focuses on death and renewal. It covers a range of topics: the restoration of an old-growth redwood barn, tribal repatriation, the survival of the Eel River, natural death care and burial practices, a sacred music recording made inside a Maltese temple and more. This issue also features two women artists--Marie Wilson, surrealist painter from Oakland and Dani Burch, clay artist from Potter Valley.
