I Was Provoked

Emily C. Heath

Our job as followers of Christ in community is to provoke one another with kindness, with compassion, with loving challenges, and with encouragement.


168 Hours

Emily C. Heath

One of the things I find myself preaching about the most is time, and how we choose to use it. 


A Time for Something New 

Emily C. Heath

In the 1960's a band put the words of Ecclesiastes to music, and the world came to know them not so much as Scripture, but as song.


A Culture of Character

Emily C. Heath

There's nothing wrong with being yourself, and being proud about it.


New Year, Old Me

Emily C. Heath

It's that time of the year when every website, magazine, and Twitter feed is selling January 1st-dated potential.


Too Busy for That

Emily C. Heath

Every year, in every church I have served, at least one faithful church member comes to me to let me know they won't be at Christmas Eve worship. 


Child of Blessing, Child of Promise

Emily C. Heath

It's up to the adults in children's lives to lift them up, and bless them on their path. And Advent is as good a time as any to start. 


Saint Sammy

Emily C. Heath

Protestant Christians don't just think of saints as people who are extraordinarily holy. Sainthood, for us, has little to do with being extraordinarily good.


Getting there…eventually

Emily C. Heath

The life of faith is not always one of immediate obedience. Sometimes it's one of wrestling with a Parent who loves us and wants what's best for us.


What Do You Want?

Emily C. Heath

When things in our lives are hardest, sometimes that's a sign that we need to take a first step towards healing.
