Stillspeaking Daily Devotional

Comfort Ye

Vince Amlin

God doesn't comfort us in our exclusion, our injustice, or our defense of systemic oppression. God doesn't comfort us in our complacency, our complicity, or our sin. 


Troubled Waters

Vicki Kemper

Consider the Elishas you know: good, faithful people caught in a mess of someone else's making, trying with everything they've got to hang on.


Chosen Family

Emily C. Heath

Our families teach us who we are, and who we can be. And sometimes God creates families for us in the most amazing ways. 


The Deep End

Vince Amlin

Faith rarely asks us to stand flat-footed with our heads above water. It beckons us to a point where we can't touch.


Abide

Mary Luti

He doesn't know who he is. He doesn't know who anyone is. Where is he if he isn't here? Who is he if he isn't who he was? 


How Much More

Vicki Kemper

Jesus doesn't say anything about dialing back our desires. He doesn't tell us what we should want. And he certainly doesn't suggest we might not deserve what we long for.


Murk and Luminescence

Matt Fitzgerald

God sees straight into your heart. God sees the awful, cringeworthy parts. And She does not say, "What's wrong with you?"


Everything Has a Season

Donna Schaper

Death is part of life. My brother Jesse is irreplaceable and he is gone.


Peace

Tony Robinson

It is the truth that God loves the world, is for all creatures, and is present with us in every endeavor to make real that love in concrete ways.


"Tried and Found Wanting"

Richard L. Floyd

God tries and tests all of us Jesus followers, as we go about our business in the world.
