"This anthology, Evensong, is a celebration of the rich spiritual tapestry that is contemporary American religious experience. If this book is flawed recall that to be spiritual is to have faith even when one doubts, to see the flaws yet find belief. "When I write poetry, I try to give myself over to the sublime, to that which is great within, to that which knows what I don�t know I know. When I participate in the writing life, I try to be giving to that which has given to me. And, let�s face it, being a poet in America sometimes feels like taking a vow of poverty! But it also provides a community of others who share a belief in the power of poetry to be redemptive, to change the moral, emotional or spiritual landscapes if only for a brief moment. "Please consider this anthology a meeting house: not everyone has shown up to services, but they�re all here in spirit." from "Introduction" by Gerry LaFemina.
