Abstract:

A Journey Just Begun tells the story of the only indigenous Canadian Anglican religious order for women, the Sisterhood of St. John the Divine, in a way that celebrates the Sisters' past, describes their present, and looks forward to their future. It focuses on God's transforming love in the lives of the Sisters, and in the lives of those they serve. The 130-year history of the Sisterhood is explored through the lens of its six Reverend Mothers and in the context of the culture of each era. The monastic life as lived today and into the future is portrayed through the lens of monastic sacred space, specifically the architecture and landscaping of the Sisters' chapels and buildings. Photographs and other creative works by the Sisters (visual arts, poetry, and music) illustrate their past, present, and future.
