Volume 15, Issue 1: Genesis (2006-2007 Issue)

"Invitation to Genesis" Notes on the 2006/2007 Issue

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the
earth... And God said, "Let there be light," and there
was light. --Genesis 1:1,3

Passion is the genesis of genius. --Anthony Robbins

In this issue, we explore the nature of beginnings. Our theme, Genesis, has brought in a broad range of submissions, from poetry reflecting on our Biblical roots to memoirs detailing first experiences at college. We asked the Concordia community to submit poems, nonfiction, artwork, photography, and short fiction that embraced our theme, but did not limit our acceptance only to work that was inspired by beginnings. What we found, however, is that almost anything can qualify as a beginning. Even an ending is a precursor to something new, something inspiring.

The Promethean has grown significantly in the past two years. This is very exciting for us and we hope the trend will continue. Our expanding staff helps to add diversity and knowledge to the review process.

We are extremely pleased with this year's issue and are proud to present it to you. We hope that The Promethean provides you with inspiration to continue on in struggle and in joy, knowing that others share the same human emotions, drives, and challenges. The Promethean is the voice of Concordia on an individual plane, and we will continue to welcome quality submissions that explore the broad range of humanity on personal, political, spiritual, and social levels.
