Stillspeaking Daily Devotional

Idol Making

Matt Fitzgerald

Equating God with an appreciation for nature risks suggesting that those who cannot afford leafy tree-lined streets don’t have equal access to the divine. Less than two miles from my house there are kids running down the street in order to dodge bullets, not peep leaves.


Paper Boats

Molly Baskette

A sacrament is: an outward and visible sign of an inner and invisible event. Sometimes, our bodies do things we wish our spirits could do.


Bring It!

Jared A. Rardin

Don’t wait to see the evidence that God’s good news is coming.  Be the evidence that God’s good news is already here! 


Selfie

Donna Schaper

Psychologists tell us that the most powerful experience people can have is to be recognized. 


No, Not Alone

Kenneth Samuel

People are connecting the dots and finding that a threat to justice anywhere is really a threat to justice everywhere.


Moving

Mary Luti

Wherever Jesus went, things shook loose.


From A Quiet Table

Matt Fitzgerald

Jesus is always working wonders, saving days, rescuing relationships. And more often than not, he does so silently.


Late Arrivals

Emily C. Heath

Not all of us make it to the manger on time, and some of us take a little longer to have an epiphany.


Guts and Glory

Vince Amlin 

"Others were tortured…They were stoned to death, they were sawn in two, they were killed by the sword; they went about in skins of sheep and goats, destitute, persecuted, tormented…They wandered in deserts and mountains, and in caves and holes in the ground…Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin that clings so closely, and let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us." - Hebrews 11:35b, 37-38, 12:1


Church-coveting

Michelle L. Torigian 

"You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor." - Exodus 20:17
