Less Boasting

Donna Schaper

Hunger for recognition is Human Being 101.

Appearances Can Be Deceiving

God looks beyond outward appearances.

The Dry Bones of Depression

Lillian Daniel

Can these dry bones live?


Alan Parker

How did it happen that this sweet, simple, unutterably sacred song became an object of ridicule?

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.


Mary Luti

Matt Fitzgerald

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