Everyone who lives experiences suffering. We all carry wounds, whether they be physical, emotional, or spiritual. Yet faith affirms that “there is a balm in Gilead, to make the wounded whole.” Music and the arts, prayer and worship, can touch our wounds and open the way to healing. This issue of The Yale ISM Review invites us to explore this reality. What is healing? What forms does it take? How can the arts help to heal our broken world?

We hope that you will find this issue both thoughtful and thought-provoking. If you like what you see, please share this publication with others! Subscription is free and open to all.
