Pleasing the Teacher

Molly Baskette

A couple months after I finished chemotherapy, when my hair was just long enough that it could have been a cute lesbian hairdo instead of a chemo patient's, I went to Zumba for the first time.


Review Your Job Description

Lillian Daniel

If the heart of the gospel is that everybody gets to grow and change, our various job descriptions should always be open to review.


A Face to Die For

Matt Laney

Seeing the face of God is our purpose.


Beware of the Side Effects

Robert Naylor                

Beware of the possible side effects is the message of the day.  That warning is also at the heart of all the teachings of our faith.


In Hindsight

Vince Amlin

When I need to get a piece of writing perfect, I take the advice of a Middle School English teacher who taught me to read backwards.


Patience

Kenneth L. Samuel

God orchestrates the delays and the disappointments and the detours of our lives to teach us the value of patience.

Molly Baskette

Pobody's Nerfect

John Edgerton

Don't be alarmed, but I have recently come to the realization that I may be wrong about some things. 


Home Truths

Richard L. Floyd

Quinn G. Caldwell

I start every Sunday morning sermon that I preach with these words from Psalm 19; I’m sure you’ve heard other preachers do the same.
