Christmas in the Swamp

Vince Amlin

There will be no white Christmas in Gainesville, Florida, tomorrow.


A New Name

Molly Baskette

Do you have any Theys in your family?


Flame

Quinn G. Caldwell

Admit it: you love fire.


A Brood of Snakes

Matt Laney

To understand John the Baptist we have to appreciate his old-fashioned idea that everyone has been compromised by that slithering serpent in the garden and is deserving of God's wrath.


Say It Again

Mary Luti

Every Advent, the prophets remind us that God is disgusted by piety divorced from justice.


I Must Stop Christmas From Coming…But How?

John Edgerton

I think I might hate the week before Christmas.


How Can I Forget?

Kenneth L. Samuel

It is said that people often forget what you say to them, but people never forget how you make them feel.


Making Room for Joy

Emily C. Heath

The church observes Advent not because we hate joy. Instead, we prepare so that we can become more joyful people.


Imperfect Love

Matt Fitzgerald

"Pray for your enemies." Only God knows what such prayer might do for those people, but if you've tried it, you know that Jesus' prayer kills the enmity that lives inside your own heart.


Jesus Goes to Hell

Martin B. Copenhaver

Hell—a sense of being forsaken, the absence of God, a place of despair. We have been there. And Jesus has been there.
