That’s right, folks–FOUR DAYS!

To get us all hyped, we’re going to spend the next few days briefly meditating on the four letters of PAAC before we drop the first post on Friday!  Today’s is Progressive.



“Our deepest calling is to grow into our own authentic self-hood, whether or not it conforms to some image of who we ought to be. As we do so, we will not only find the joy that every human being seeks–we will also find our path of authentic service in the world.”

–Parker J. Palmer, Let Your Life Speak

“We have a world to conquer…one person at a time…starting with ourselves.”

–Nikki Giovanni

Our intention: Self-awareness is a radical act of self-love. Whether progressive in our politics or our theology or both, it is our intention that AsAm writers, young and old, can use this space for self-reflection both individually and communally, of our past and our present, so that we might better serve this beautiful, ailing, broken world.


Much Love,

The Editors
