Homeless

Donna Schaper

Congregations are soup kitchens for the spiritually hungry, shelters for the spiritually homeless, nests for the baby bird in all of us.


Sin and Sickness

Kenneth L. Samuel

God let your deliverance be manifested in our decisions. Amen.


Your Will?

Tony Robinson

Sometimes people are skeptical that we can ever really know God’s will. But maybe the real problem is that, if we ask, we don’t like the answers we get.


Trading Guilt for Grace

Marchaé Grair

Divine One, extend your grace to me and help me extend that same grace to myself. Amen.


Do Not Fret (Easy for You to Say)

Talitha Arnold

Trust. Do good. Take delight. Commit to God’s way. Take the next step, and trust that God is with you.


Handle Your Business

Marilyn Pagán-Banks

The work of restorative justice teaches us that we can and should take the time to hear one another, to acknowledge any harm done and all hurt experienced, to create space to be held accountable, and to do the work necessary to restore the relationship.


Actively Waiting

John A. Nelson

Even now, while the mess and muddle seem to reign supreme, the Holy One is carrying the day.


Make Me a Living Blessing

Ashley Harness

Holy One, help me remember I am blessed so that I might be a living blessing.


A Simple Question

Emily C. Heath

I wonder what Jesus would ask congregations who have been kicking the metaphorical can down the road for years and years, bemoaning a culture that has passed them by, blaming a changing world for declining membership. “Do you want to get well?”


Yes. Period.

Jennifer Brownell

Dance and feast and laugh and shout and share the good news and love one another. Because our Savior says yes.
