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.


Be Subject

Martha Spong

My son is getting married next spring, at the church where he was baptized and I was ordained.
