Have you ever looked up through your windshield and seen a billboard that said "If you die tonight are you sure you would go to heaven?"
Being everything to everyone usually means nothing to anyone.
You can run from death. You can immerse yourself in the surface, diverted by screens and magazines, distracted from everything, including existence itself.
Quinn G. Caldwell
While I've never for one second fretted that God might intentionally open the fountains of the deep, I think a great deal about the ways we seem to be hellbent on doing that ourselves.
Repent! Turn about!
Mid-Lent is a good moment to remember Ash Wednesday.
Kenneth L. Samuel
Our world is full of countless either/or choices.
Nothing thrown back to wound or destroy—this is the gospel whose ministers we are. Offer it to someone today.
We all long for affirmation. We ask "Am I worthwhile? Am I a valuable? Am I beloved?"
Emily C. Heath
