It was the fall of 2013 that I learned of the publication of Convergent Streams . I recall the excitement I had on learning that a publication specific to the Independent Sacramental Movement (ISM) existed. I immediately ordered all of the back issues as well as the current issue for that time. In fact I keep the hard copies on my night stand and will often return to and re-read an article (s).
There is a need for ongoing communication and sharing within the ISM. Convergent Streams provides an avenue for that. The challenge to the magazines continued success as well as the enhancement of communication within the movement is making others aware that such a publication exists .
The magazine from my perspective added a degree or level of validity to the movement. Although some may disagree with this statement , I believe this to be true . I like perhaps a number o others find myself frequently explaining who and what I am and who and what , we are. Convergent Streams serves as a resource for advancing that identity .
Keep up the great work!
