St. Mary's Sewanee comes to you! Maybe you cannot get to away to a retreat this summer. Perhaps you want just a nugget of inspiration or a daily dose of positivity. They’ve got it for you.

One beautiful photograph; one thought (usually only a sentence or two) that will help you start the day with a calm, uplifting message.
