Thankfully Holding Your Tongue

Matt Laney

Few of us will have roasted tongue for Thanksgiving, but maybe we should.


Geraldine

As a teenager, I had a summer job in a nursing home kitchen, where my boss was Geraldine the cook, a tiny, perpetually aggrieved woman who seemed to me to be at least as old as the patients.


Ancient Faith

Donna Schaper

Judgment

Kenneth L. Samuel

I know it's not a very liberal or progressive notion.


The Blessingway

Talitha Arnold

Comfortable

Quinn Caldwell

A man plants a vineyard (aka "God creates the world").

Finding Heart Again

Liza M. Neal

Lately losing heart is a daily struggle.


Stomp on Satan

Vince Amlin

In middle school, my youth group stopped at a small country church for worship one Sunday on our way back from a mission trip. 


Laughing, Singing and Dancing Our Way to Resilience
