Receive postcards

About Laurie...

Hello Friend!

Isn't Postcrossing fun? I sure think so!
I have three degrees: a Bachelor of Fine Art from Queen's University, a Master of Arts in Theology from Regent College at the University of British Columbia and a Master of Arts in Chaplaincy from Sydney College of Divinity in Australia.
I'm an Associate of the Sisterhood of Saint John the Divine, a monastic order within the Anglican Church of Canada. This involves a commitment to a Rule of Life that I take seriously. Hence, I pray on a daily basis.
Besides collecting postcards of sacred sites and being involved spiritually in the lives of others, my hobbies are: singing (I'm a member of a vocal ensemble), doing yoga, reading theology, vegan baking and walking by the lake... I enjoy pondering the meaning of life over cappuccinos in unique cafes and meeting with friends for delicious homemade meals. Currently, I'm studying to become a yoga teacher. Hence, I'm practicing yoga twice a day.

PLEASE send me single view postcards that are beautiful & well designed.
I really only want to receive postcards of:

- churches, cathedrals, chapels,
- convents, abbeys or monasteries,
- seminaries, theological colleges,
- retreat centres,
- synagogues,
- mosques,
- temples,
- shrines,
- ashrams,
- yoga studios &/or people doing yoga
- religious art, iconography
- people praying, meditating, praising or worshiping God
- nuns, monks, priests, imams and other religious leaders in religious wear
- the Bible, Koran, Torah or other sacred texts
- labyrinths

Alternatively, receiving a postcard that has "WELCOME!" written on it would be nice. If you are stuck, check out my Favourites page. (When I'm procrastinating I like going through the Recent Postcards on Postcrossing clicking on my Faves.)

Please: no ad cards, no homemade cards and no multi view cards.

***On your card please tell me who God is (or isn't) for you and how you experience the Living One. I'm finding it interesting reading about who The Divine Presence is for different people in a variety of life circumstances.

Also, please put a well designed stamp on your postcard and some pretty stickers as I love stickers! I find it interesting to see cute stickers from all around the world.

Recently, I received a postcard from Japan, which the sender put in a clear plastic envelop. She cut out the top right corner of the envelop where the stamp was so that the post office could register the stamp whilst keeping the rest of the postcard clean. I really appreciated that.

Lastly, if you want an image of your postcard on Postcrossing, scan it before mailing it as I don't have a scanner.

Best Wishes,
