SHAWN DUNCAN is a husband, father of two boys, minister, student, backpacker, and, especially/reluctantly the beloved of the Father.  Monastics, activists, and musicians inspire him; he would like to die as at least one of those three, but is currently less than .02% of any of them.  The spoken and written word are his tools, the new and coming world is what he hopes to help build.

BRIAN IKEDA earns his living as an art director, yet couldn’t imagine his life past the year 2000. Now living in unconsidered territory, he is a father, a husband and a collector of coffee brewing devices (current count: 5.) He has found God in church, in starlit fields, in the movie Amelié and the songs of Belle and Sebastian, but not necessarily in that order.
