Holiness Code

Quinn G. Caldwell

Listen, and I will tell you a mystery: God doesn't love your rules. God loves God's people.


Boasting of Grace

Emily C. Heath

Far from what I thought Christians believed when I was growing up, it turns out that God doesn't require perfection from us in order to love us.


Would You Rather?

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.


A Promise that Bears Repeating

John A. Nelson

A wise friend said that as soon as you say, "It can't happen," the possibilities you have not yet seen start to shrivel and die. So stretch your imagination. God is there and then, here and now.


A God Who Can Take It

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.


Blessed Wilderness

Vicki Kemper

Lent is a time to learn who and whose we are, to prepare for what is to come, to create a life-shaping bond with the Holy One that not even death will be able to break.


In Body or Spirit

Vince Amlin

We confess and pray: Defier of Labels, teach me to meet my neighbors in their fullness.


The Choice to Rejoice

Matt Laney

The discipline of rejoicing is an act of resistance when injustices and struggles pile up. If we do that much, we triumph.


Parents are Dreamers, Too

Lillian Daniel

Dream big, bold, and brave. God bless the dreamers, young and old, and bless the lands their dreams carry them to.


Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Kenneth L. Samuel

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