These two streams of faith are presented on their own, but also standing next to one another in solidarity, moving on a common path toward liberation. Salvatierra and Wrencher have marked out some of those steps on the path in Buried Seeds. They highlight two communities currently walking that way, La Fuente Ministries in Pasadena, California, and the previously mentioned Mission House in Salisbury, North Carolina. Ultimately, their stories and reflection remind readers that BECs did not die in the 1980s, nor did the hush harbors following the Civil War. Those legacies live, and they have living embodiments. “They’ve never left,” they say. “They are always already here: on the edge, the margin, off the grid, hidden in plain sight.”
