Kenneth L. Samuel

Perhaps it is only when we acknowledge our lack of control that we really begin to trust the God who is always in control.

Genre Fatigue in Vegas

Lillian Daniel

Excess makes us miss restraint.

Just As I Am

Richard L. Floyd

Is God really like a Santa Claus character who "sees you when you're sleeping" or a prying parent who stalks your Facebook page?


Matt Laney

So often we stumble and bumble, going through the motions, mechanically punching in and punching out, dragging ourselves through a caffeine withdrawal-like state.


Mary Luti

For Jesus, the kingdom comes by wonder and strategy, protest and ecstasy, imagination and politics . . .

John Edgerton

Functional Atheism

Molly Baskette

One of the great sicknesses of the 21st century is our solitariness, our isolation from each other and from God.

Joseph's Tears

Mary Luti

Sometimes we have to trust the sufficiency of tears.

Kenneth L. Samuel
