Stillspeaking Daily Devotional

Resurrection

Jennifer Garrison Brownell

It was not one thing, but all the day’s little annoyances that combined to feel completely overwhelming.


God Hates Figs (Satire Alert)

Matt Laney

This is not a message I want to deliver, but the Bible leaves me no choice. There is no politically correct alternative.


Sinners

Mary Luti

Some people find confession depressing. They want to hear that they're good, and getting better all the time. They want church to further their self-improvement projects. I'm not so keen on that.


The Kindness of a Hermit

Matt Fitzgerald

God, thank you for the ways your "yes" is always being echoed on this earth.


Uncomfortable

Emily C. Heath

The church does not thrive in comfort. The church thrives when it is being called to the messy and painful work of transforming the world.


Me and My Sombrero

Marchae Grair

God, help me to seek lessons from my elders while building my own authentic truths.


Whole Cost Accounting

Donna Schaper

What if it is true that it would cost less to resolve poverty than it does to sustain it?  What if it was true that it would cost less to resolve the environmental crisis than to sustain it?


Room

Mary Luti

When I was young, I knew a family that was fanatically protective of their  living room. The armchairs and sofa had plastic covers. The carpet was unblemished. The end tables were Pledged to an impossible sheen.


Turn or Burn?

Matt Laney

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?"


All Things to All People

Elissa Johnk

Being everything to everyone usually means nothing to anyone.
