In this issue we’re focusing on the way words and images are used in the realms of faith and good causes – down a slope toward deception and manipulation.

We offer a diversity of ways to move away from slick, prescriptive, agenda-laden use if words and images toward a more imaginative, liberating and honest discourse.
