Books of the Bible: Psalm

Jennifer Brownell

Worry or regret seem to choose me in the middle of the night. Invariably, I choose them back. Maybe it's time to try something different—to see the steadfastness of God's presence with me the whole time.


Talitha Arnold

We don't have to pretend everything is okay when it isn't. We don't have to protect God from our anger or anguish. God can take it.


Kenneth L. Samuel

On this Ash Wednesday we are mindful of the ashes from which we were created.


Quinn G. Caldwell

God knows that behind every revenge fantasy and every bit of righteous anger and every unholy wish for our enemies’ demise lies some ancient hurt or old wrong or fresh wound. And God bends down from on high to gather our tears.


Elsa Cook

Hope can feel impossible and maybe even absurd. But hope is more than issues and ideas. Hope is where we find God.
