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.
