Holy mischief in an age of fast faith
Geez is non-profit, ad-free, printed on 100 per cent post-consumer recycled paper, and operated out of the second floor of a co-operative house on Home Street in Winnipeg. The editors say, “We’ve set up camp in the outback of the spiritual commons. A bustling spot for the over-churched, out-churched, un-churched and maybe even the un-churchable.”
Geez is a Canadian Christian publication. It makes for very thought-provoking reading, and many of the essays in it are top-of-the-line. The staff seems very dedicated to living out the “holy mischief” the magazine is devoted to, and they manage to maintain a sense of humor, which is encouraging.
Free copies of Geez were distributed at the last Festival of Faith and Music, and even though Hekman doesn’t subscribe, you might be able to scrounge up a few copies around campus/the English department.

“We welcome photos, articles (20-2000 words), stories, brainwaves and graphic design pieces.
Experiments in truth. Front-line social change. Dumpster religion. Decorporatization of your soul. Teargas. Hardcore silence. We want to hear about it.
Preference given to: solid writing, pinhole photos, the unchurched, international content, people with dirt under their fingernails (literally), atheist grandmothers and small town skateboarders.”
