John Santic is one of the many good people I've met in my mostly generative time on the interwebs. I've also had the pleasure of meeting him in person in Vancouver a few years back.
John has a very big heart. And like many others, he's concerned at what The Winter Olympics have wrought in his fair city – especially in regard to the "least of these."
John has chosen his art form, photography, combined with poetry to tell the liturgical story of the Stations of the Cost.
‘(There) are fourteen images with poetic reflections on the social, economic, and environmental issues surrounding the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. In the pattern of the ancient Christian Liturgy, the ‘Stations of the Cross’, we want to help you recognize that many are suffering as a result of the Olympics as low cost housing disappears, government debt increases, the environment erodes, and the poor are criminalized. Our hope is to bring attention to these issues because we are inspired by a vision of equality, justice, healing, and well being for all people.
Please make a point of visiting John's Stations of the Cost site and pray for Vancouver and the real costs of these "Games."
