They were part of a group of religious leaders I took on a “spiritual tour” of the Aquarium. Before entering, I asked them to imagine they were about to enter a cathedral and to consider what images and feelings might be similar in both buildings. Tish said, "I love the way stained glass windows in a church tell a story with beauty. I get the same feeling looking at the Kelp Forest exhibit."
Tish directs the catechetical ministries of the Monterey Catholic Diocese, and is a great supporter of Blue Theology. Last summer she helped organize our Blue Theology week for youth from the farm labor camps of rural Monterey County. She knows the power of both beauty and story.
