First Day of School

Jennifer Brownell

We gather the children at the door on the first day of school – their faces shining or scowling, in new school clothes or tattered jeans, with fresh haircuts or last year's shag.


Holy Habitations

Donna Schaper

Are church buildings an asset or a liability?


Loving Anger

John A. Nelson

Anger gets a bad rap. 


Whisper a Prayer

Marchaé Grair

I was surprised when I started humming this song recently as I shuffled around my apartment.


Jesus is Lord

Molly Baskette

"Lord" language for Jesus has been out of vogue for a while, at least among a certain swath of progressive Christians.


No Doubts? I Doubt It!

Richard L. Floyd

Martin Luther didn't care much for the Letter of James.


(Ir)Rational

Quinn G. Caldwell

Bad news, friend: you are not a rational person.


Heart to Heart

John A. Nelson

He is mentioned five times in the Bible, once as a companion of Paul and four times as Paul's emissary.


Be Subject

Martha Spong

My son is getting married next spring, at the church where he was baptized and I was ordained.


You Are What You Eat

Matt Laney

Remember that time your pastor said something controversial in the name of the gospel and people got all huffy and threatened to leave the church or stop giving?
