Body and Spirit

God creates us body and spirit, but often the two seem in opposition to each other. In this issue the writers consider different ways in which the bodily and the spiritual nourish and support each other; in touch, in lessons learnt from Zen, in womenís experience and in menís, and in the life of Saint Francis. It seems a particularly appropriate theme in this season, as we remember that God took our flesh and lived our bodily life.
