Make Me a Living Blessing

Ashley Harness

Holy One, help me remember I am blessed so that I might be a living blessing.


A Simple Question

Emily C. Heath

I wonder what Jesus would ask congregations who have been kicking the metaphorical can down the road for years and years, bemoaning a culture that has passed them by, blaming a changing world for declining membership. “Do you want to get well?”


Yes. Period.

Jennifer Brownell

Dance and feast and laugh and shout and share the good news and love one another. Because our Savior says yes.


Unfinished Business

Richard L. Floyd

The Christian life is more like gardening than it is like cooking. You plant seeds, you water and tend your garden, and you wait for God to give the growth.


Planted

Molly Baskette

God, I’m thirsty. I long for rest. Show me the way to Your water, and give me permission to stay there. Amen.


Whose Body? Our Body!

Phiwa Langeni

What if the Body of Christ unapologetically cared for its mentally ill parts and its youthful parts and its kinky parts and its rural parts and its non-binary parts?


Community Care is Self-Care

Chris Davies

We're intimately connected, one to the other, and God is the energetic thread of love that binds us together.


Glory, Given

Quinn G. Caldwell

Glory isn’t itself unless you’re giving it away. Give it to God, and the whole world will blossom with beauty.


Turning Thirty

Mary Luti

Find the work that is seeking you. Find it, step out in trust, and do it.


Some People Are Saying…

Vince Amlin

In the UCC Pension Boards' Next Generation Leadership Initiative, I was taught to listen past the specific content of criticism to its relational context.
