Purpose Stereogram

Move close to the image and pull back slowly, there are words hidden in plain sight! At the start of it (being our conscious lives), we may have asked questions. Why are things the way they are? Who are we? Why is the sky blue? I know that I tested my mother daily with questions …

They Want Our Silence

If we are silent, do we consent? We have seen historic economic, religious, political, and sociological challenges in our lifetime. If you are reading this today, you have personal experience with dramatic global change.

For all that Freedom
