Matt Laney

Sometimes the experience of Jesus way-back-when blocks our ability to recognize him here-and-now.


Donna Schaper

The truth about eternity is that it is connected to now. There is no later when it comes to eternity. It is not a bargain nor can it be postponed.


Kaji Douša

Fasting from the profits of the world is too hard to do without fervent prayer and radical generosity. So often, we climb upon the backs of others in order to reap our short-term rewards. But at what personal cost?


Vicki Kemper

Lent is a time to learn who and whose we are, to prepare for what is to come, to create a life-shaping bond with the Holy One that not even death will be able to break.


Matt Laney

Gratitude plus generosity equals abundance for all.
