Q&A about “Liberty + Vine”

Susan Hines-Brigger, editor of Liberty + Vine, sits down for a Q&A about this new digital magazine from Franciscan Media.

What is Liberty + Vine? What’s it about?

Liberty + Vine is a monthly digital magazine from Franciscan Media that seeks to meet people wherever they are on their spiritual paths. Our tagline is “at the intersection of faith and life,” and that’s where many of us are. Liberty + Vine strives to bridge the gap between our faith lives and our daily lives.

Describe the tone of Liberty + Vine.

We try to strike a popular, conversational tone. Faith doesn’t always have to be a heavy subject. We offer a balance of meaty, spiritual content and fun, contemporary pieces as well. We hope Liberty + Vine will foster discussion and reflection.

What can readers expect each month?

Readers can expect a wide range of content, from feature articles to shorter reflection pieces; commentary on movies, books, music, and more. It also includes news and information to help answer questions about faith, as well as a bit of inspiration. We hope it offers something for everyone.

As editor, what are your hopes for this project?

I hope Liberty + Vine will help people find ways to bring faith into their lives. Single parents who have lost touch with their spiritual roots, Mass-going families, young and hungry faith seekers: we are all under one tent. Liberty + Vine hopes to reflect and celebrate that.

How can people subscribe to Liberty + Vine?

Go to LibertyandVine.org for more information and to subscribe. On the site, you can download the August issue—which is free. This will give readers a taste of what we’re doing. I think you’ll like what you see!
