Statement: At the moment of the Annunciation, Mary prayerfully offers herself and her body to God, that within her body God might become incarnate in human flesh and dwell among us.


Bio: I am an ELCA pastor and social worker, happily and blessedly retired at River Respite Benedictory,, on the St Lawrence River in Upstate New York, where I pray and paint icons in peaceful solitude. My husband Richard is a Brother of St Gregory (BSG/TEC) and together we offer the hospitality of River Respite to other clergy and vowed religious.
