Dead

Mary Luti

We hold our breath and wait: "For the world now groaning, is there life? Is there life for you, Holy One?"


Last Tuesday

Quinn G. Caldwell

Some of us look away from Good Friday violence because we're too pampered to handle it. Some of us look away because we're tired of seeing it every day on the streets and in our homes.


Commandment

Emily C. Heath

Jesus could have said anything at the last supper. He could have told his friends to avenge his death. He could have raged about the unfairness of life. Instead he said, "Love one another."


Silent Wednesday

Jennifer Brownell

More and more, we live in front of cameras and screens, surrounded as much by the witness of the cloud as a cloud of witnesses. How do we live when Jesus is your only witness?


The Name Beyond Names

John A. Nelson

The-One-Who-Enlarges takes on those who would make God small. The Creator-Who-Is-Still-Shaping-Me defies those who think in terms of caste or tribe.


A Pound of Pure Nard

Talitha Arnold

Perhaps Jesus could love because Mary had loved him. She anointed his feet; he washed the disciples'. She poured out her love in a costly perfume. He did the same for the whole world.


Donkeys and Disciples

Vicki Kemper

Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Sometimes it is easier to be donkey than disciple.


Out of the Mouths of Babes

Vince Amlin

God, give me the eyes of a child to see the richness of my life. And keep the party going.


Unlikely Bed-buddies

Matt Laney

You know grief and loss. You've been hurt a thousand times. As impossible as it might feel, trust that blessing is already embracing your anguish and that God will indeed turn the page.


"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.
