What if the aisle swings out the side door — into the back alley, a forest, a kitchen, a cabbage field?

What if it forks, or spirals, or heads over a cliff at the front of the church?

What if you go the wrong direction?

This is an alter call for folks at the fringes of faith.

IMPORTANT NOTE: we only have coil bound copies of this issue. It’s all the same magazine, but without the groovy spine. If you want that please order this.
