Stillspeaking Daily Devotional

The Faith to Shut My Mouth

Matt Fitzgerald

I have tried to convince people of God's existence.


The Church that Plays Together

Molly Baskette

At church, the hub of much of our spiritual practice, how many of us talk exclusively about the "work" of the church? We often treat the stuff we do at church as a kind of bitter endurance contest.


Prophet

Quinn G. Caldwell

We talk about welcoming people in terms of what we have that they might need.  And of course that's a good start. There's another good reason to welcome all, though: enlightened self-interest.  


Dress Up

Donna Schaper

I remember when you had to dress up to go to church.  It was fun in a way that today's uniforms are not.


Envy

Kenneth L. Samuel

There is liberating power when we live authentically in the flow of who we truly are and in the things we've truly earned and in the gifts we truly possess.  


Fuel

Mary Luti

The world's suffering is immense, and the forces that profit from this pain are not about to let anyone come even a tiny step closer to fixing it without a deadly fight.


Holding Hands

Matt Fitzgerald

No one would ever say this: "I've got a great idea for a restaurant! Hungry senior citizens served by kids who argue when they're asked to clear the table."


Job's Friends

Emily C. Heath

Have you ever known someone like Job's friends? Someone who comes in during the midst of tragedy and tries to find an easy explanation for what happened?


Freedom for What?

Vince Amlin

Paul reminds the Christians in Galatia that for them freedom is never an end in itself.


Pleasing the Teacher

Molly Baskette

A couple months after I finished chemotherapy, when my hair was just long enough that it could have been a cute lesbian hairdo instead of a chemo patient's, I went to Zumba for the first time.
