"You're a Fool"

Lillian Daniel

We bear a lot of pain in the name of love. As Christians, we do that for one another, in order to remember that God is doing it for us.


Growth Mindset

Molly Baskette

We are all lifelong learners, Jesus says, and there's only one Teacher. So if you think you're wise, get over yourself.


Why Did Jesus Bother?

Tony Robinson

When our plans and predictions go bust and our expectations aren't fulfilled, God is still God.


Speak Life

Marchaé Grair

There is no gospel that leads to the killing of the soul. The Spirit calls for us to speak the words that set people free, not the words that keep them in their chains.


A Change of Heart

Richard L. Floyd

The metaphorical heart is a matter of life and death. The heart is implicated in the choices of lovers and fools, and who among us hasn't been both at some time in our life?


Extravagance

Tony Robinson

Extravagance can scare us. It scared Judas. And extravagance—God's extravagance—can save us. Mary understood this and did not fear the extravagant mercy of God.


Souls in Prison

Kaji Douša

Maybe we start to accept the things we really should not, growing accustomed to being so enclosed that we risk forgetting what it means to be free—if we ever knew it.


Inseparable

Kenneth L. Samuel

The season of Lent is the season of love’s endurance. Love can endure disappointment, pain and even disloyalty. But love never endures the separation of termination.


From the Complaint Department

Mary Luti

How long, O Lord? We need the world you promise. We need you to vindicate our sticking with you all this time, to redeem our suffering and crown our deaths with life.


Rogue

Quinn G. Caldwell

God, your world is full of wonders and mysteries. Let me not be too quick to dismiss them, and let me, at least sometimes, believe them before it’s wise.
