The Time is Ripe

Vince Amlin

As I write this (months before you will read it), it's hard to conjure up the sights and sounds of December.


Stand Down

Mary Luti

Jobs that require you to do nothing but look are really hard: cops on stakeouts, soldiers on watch, TSA agents scanning carry-ons hour after hour.


In the Meantime

Kenneth L. Samuel

Wouldn't it be wonderful if there were no gap between our prayer petitions and the granting of our prayer petitions?


Who Are You?

Vicki Kemper

How often, when standing at the crossroads of hope and fear, have you let your cold feet keep to the safest path?


Watch Out

Kaji Douŝa

In Season 3 of the Coen Brothers' series Fargo, the chief villain says, "The problem is not that there is evil in the world. The problem is that there is good. Because, otherwise, who would care?"


The Thief of the Lord

Tony Robinson

When we suffered a burglary I found myself feeling naked and vulnerable.


Nearby

Quinn G. Caldwell

Almost 500 years ago today, a man named Juan Diego was walking on a hill just outside a young Mexico City, when he was stopped by the apparition of a young woman.


Scattered by Persecution

Donna Schaper

One persecution is a lot like another.


The Fearful Listener

Marchaé Grair

I'm a great listener. 


Expect the Unexpected!

Richard L. Floyd

Many of the scripture readings for Advent are full of such warnings and dire forebodings.
