Debra Rienstra is Professor of English at Calvin University, where she teaches early modern British Literature and creative writing. She is the author of several books and is a respected voice on various aspects of Christian life. Presently she is developing a project, and hosts a podcast, associated with refugia, which are places of environmental, cultural, and religious refuge amid disturbance. Such places have rarely felt more necessary – or seemed, perhaps, less available. So how do we find or create these refugia? What sacrifices do they require and what risks do they entail?
