Stand

Kaji Douša

At the end of one of my favorites of my grandfather's sermons, he shouted:
"Even if you stand alone, stand!"


Genre

Quinn G. Caldwell

I have a mentor and colleague who, every time somebody asks her about reading or studying the Bible, says, "Genre matters."


The Elusive Presence

Richard L. Floyd

James makes knowing God sound easy, but I've never found it so.


Resisting and Attracting

Kenneth L. Samuel

According to the wisdom of Proverbs, our thoughts determine our reality, "for as a person thinketh, so is he/she." According to the Buddha, what you think you become; what you feel you attract; what you imagine you create.


Even Cheaper Grace

Vince Amlin

My old therapist claimed we tend to ask exactly the wrong questions of ourselves.


Of Dirt and Air

Jennifer Brownell

Today is the autumnal equinox.


Renovation

Donna Schaper

Chartres in France employs a digital light show to express what divinity enters the important cathedral.


Underestimated

Marchaé Grair

Do you ever feel underestimated?


God, Rid Me of God

Matt Laney

Every so often someone will confide this to me: "I'm not sure I believe in God anymore..."


Start With One

Vicki Kemper

Jesus tells the Parable of the Lost Sheep to help us understand how precious we are to God: How the Good Shepherd cannot bear to lose even one beloved one to predators, thieves, lousy judgment, a poor sense of direction, or plain bad luck.
