Cast your bread

Upon the waters–

Confess over it all the

Iniquities of the people

Of Israel–

Into the depths of the sea,

All our sins.

For there are three that testify:

The Spirit

and the Water

Now become wine

And the blood born not 

Of blood nor of the flesh

Nor of the will of man

But of God

For the bread of God 

Is He who comes down

From Heaven and gives 


To the world

Bearing all iniquities 

On itself.

And the year of redemption

Hi, there! My name is Stephanie and I’m a Fresno, CA native. After studying at Biola University, I received my MLIS (Masters in Library Science) from San Jose State University. I live with my mom, poet Kimberly Vargas Agnese, and serve as her unofficial agent. We reside at MeadowArc, a food forest in its infancy. I am called to, and passionate about, purity. In fact, the name Agnes means “pure.” Before I was born, my mom felt led to include the name Agnes in her name, and in the names of her children. My full, hyphenated name includes 26 letters (but not the whole alphabet).
