Still Life Goes On

Kaji Douša

In all that we do, we hold a basket of fruit into which we and the others around us make an offering.  

 


Laughable

Emily C. Heath

When I work with the children and youth of my church, I'm always aware of the power I hold to shape their futures. I try to remember that an off-hand comment might squelch a kid's dream.


Sing

Quinn G. Caldwell

Humans are the only singing species with a precise and shared sense of rhythm, which is what allows us to sing together.  Two birds might sing the same song, but they cannot sing it together.


Searching for Holy Ground

Richard L. Floyd

You can't find holy ground with your GPS.


Safe Arrival

Molly Baskette

It might seem counterintuitive that a Christian would be afraid to fly. And aren't we supposed to have dealt with irrational fears and a propensity to worry, simply because Jesus told us to?


Holding Hands

Matt Fitzgerald

Each year our church hosts a luncheon for our elderly members. The servers are our fifth graders.


Bearing False Witness

Mary Luti

I don't know what it will take to get us to stop bearing false witness against our neighbors. To stop writing Jews out of their own story. To finally wipe this ancient stain from the Christian heart.


The World is not Enough

Quinn G. Caldwell

Perhaps it's a failure of imagination or nerve, but I simply cannot conceive of a world where our existence simply ends at death.


But First It Will Make You Mad

Tony Robinson

We imagine that we have arrived, that we are the smart, the strong, the good and the successful. But face to face with Jesus, we find that maybe we have made a little too much of ourselves.


Sometimes Spirits Need Shelters

Maren Tirabassi

Thank you for all the small and precious stories of unquenchable spirits.
