Why?

Mary Luti

"I know he suffered for us, in our place. What I want to ask him is why we have to suffer. Why we still have to suffer so much!"


Sprint or Marathon?

Emily C. Heath

The Christian life is a long journey, full of challenge, full of opportunities to quit. There are times when you wonder "is this worth it"?


COEXIST?

Matt Fitzgerald

Here's a middle-aged complaint: a bumper sticker offends me. 


Simple Church

Anthony B. Robinson

I have a feeling that this busy—too busy—church may be coming to an end, dying, in our own time. I have a sense that there's a yearning, deep and beyond easy articulation, for something we might call "simple church."


Pay it Forward

Molly Baskette

Charity can do a lot of good, but charity also sometimes brings dented castoffs from the back of the pantry to the food drive and calls it love.


Sometimes Spirits Need Shelters

Maren C. Tirabassi

Ellie adapted and adjusted to limitations caused by aging, redefining loss as opportunity. 


In the Twinkling of An Eye

Mary Luti

We don't know the moment God will choose to accomplish the good it would take us forever to do. It could be any moment. It could be every moment.


All About That Bass?

Matt Laney

Warning: I'm about to say something unchristian.


Whose Bus is It?

Donna Schaper

Very few of us are able to be free of our perch or our point of view.


Intensity in the Pew

Matt Fitzgerald

When I was a child church evoked two emotions: boredom and awe.
