Refuge, Not Retreat

Kenneth L. Samuel

Almost daily now, our sensitivities and sensibilities are being assaulted with cascading reports of gun violence and human massacre, here and abroad.


Less Banjo

Vince Amlin

"If this were our church," my copastor and I are fond of saying, "there would be more banjo."


First Day of School

Jennifer Brownell

We gather the children at the door on the first day of school – their faces shining or scowling, in new school clothes or tattered jeans, with fresh haircuts or last year's shag.


Holy Habitations

Donna Schaper

Are church buildings an asset or a liability?


Loving Anger

John A. Nelson

Anger gets a bad rap. 


Whisper a Prayer

Marchaé Grair

I was surprised when I started humming this song recently as I shuffled around my apartment.


Jesus is Lord

Molly Baskette

"Lord" language for Jesus has been out of vogue for a while, at least among a certain swath of progressive Christians.


No Doubts? I Doubt It!

Richard L. Floyd

Martin Luther didn't care much for the Letter of James.


(Ir)Rational

Quinn G. Caldwell

Bad news, friend: you are not a rational person.


Heart to Heart

John A. Nelson

He is mentioned five times in the Bible, once as a companion of Paul and four times as Paul's emissary.
