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.


Bottle

Quinn G. Caldwell

God knows that behind every revenge fantasy and every bit of righteous anger and every unholy wish for our enemies’ demise lies some ancient hurt or old wrong or fresh wound. And God bends down from on high to gather our tears.


Partners

Mary Luti

Still, you can’t offer Mercy to an enemy every week and not start to mean it, even a little. You can’t put Healing in someone’s hand for months on end without something rubbing off.


Not like Raffi

John Edgerton

God give me the courage to be a vessel for Your light, a channel for Your grace, a laborer in the vineyard of Your peaceable Realm.


Come By Here

Elsa Cook

Hope can feel impossible and maybe even absurd. But hope is more than issues and ideas. Hope is where we find God.


Abusers

Kaji Douša

The most effective prayers for abusers are offered from the strength garnered with distance. Pray with your cheek far from the strike and find your strength.


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.
