PHOTOGRAPHY HEALS because it offers the Spirit the opportunity to touch our soul with “sighs too deep for words.” Sometimes we venture out with our cameras because we seek healing of some type. We do not have the words to address the pain, so we allow the Spirit to speak for us through the gift of our camera. At other times, we discover places where the Spirit has healed the undetected wounds in our soul. Either way, photography heals in cooperation with the Spirit.
—Valerie K. Isenhower, Meditation on Both Sides of the Camera: A Spiritual Journey in Photography (Upper Room Books, 2012)
“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.”
—Romans 8:26 (NRSV)
