Volume 20: August, 2007
Volume 20 of The Edge of Propinquity has been published! A friend told me that the month of August has become the month of lease endings and beginnings. Things are in motion all over the city like a giant chessboard of people trying to get all of their belongings from one place to another. For those who don't mind used furniture, it is a bounty of 'free' stuff left on curbsides to find new home. But, as we all know, nothing in life is truly free. This true in this month's issue where we have the paying off of debts, the following of one's path, a continuing scavenger hunt, the hunter becoming the hunted and haunted becoming the hunter.

Guest Author - Marked by Tracie McBride
Marked by a livid scar from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet from a lightening strike years ago, at least one person believes Hannah was touched by God and such touches come with responsibility. In this case, at least one person is right.
