Our world needs to raise both the form and content of its present discourse. We are living in trying yet interesting times. Muslims as well as other faith-based communities share many of the same concerns and struggles. We need to examine our conditions and strive to understand them in order to effect positive and lasting change in our communities. Seasons is an effort to share in that process. It is our hope that it will provide a forum for scholars, intellectuals, artists, activists, and students to voice their insights, concerns, reflections, and aspirations for the world. We hope this journal will reflect well the seasonal gifts of this wondrous journey we make each year around the sun, only to find ourselves back where we started. “From God we came and to God we return."
