The Porch is a magazine and community made by and for folk who are hungry for a hopeful vision of the world that has something to offer everyday life, tired of the social media grind, and want to connect more deeply with creative ideas and community, and sensing the authenticity of spirituality, and the possibility of friendship across diversity.
