The seeds that giants plant

Today I attended a Christian-Muslim conference in Edinburgh. I was stunned by the painting of Marcella Althaus-Reid that hangs in the Rainy Hall at Edinburgh's New College.

During my Ph.D, I shared a platform with her at the Edinburgh Festival on Spirituality. After the talks, she took me aside and told me to keep asking the difficult questions. Looking up at this painting today made me think...these special moments during my academic studies were the priceless seeds. May she be resting in peace.
