OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance
Merrick said he wanted to write about the Transfiguration, but then came back and asked if I would accept a poem. I’m so glad that he did! It’s the shortest entry in OtherWise Christian 2, but it’s powerful.
Merrick’s chapter, “Transfiguration,” will appear in OtherWise Christian 2: Stories of Resistance (forthcoming spring 2020) from OtherWise Engaged Publishing.
