What Are You Teaching Today?

Kenneth L. Samuel

What life lessons will we teach others through our attitudes and actions today?


Today Could be Christmas

Martin B. Copenhaver

Sometimes I think that Christmas, properly celebrated, would not be a fixed date on the calendar.  It would not happen on the same day every year.  It would be more like a surprise party.  


Sacred Speech/Verbal Pollution

Tony Robinson

Truth is elusive and hard to come by. Figuring out what is true, listening for truth, speaking truth; it's hard work.


Jesus the Baby

Donna Schaper

The way Jesus lived, always opening every gate, refusing every lock down, became the pattern for a life that cannot die.


In the Beginning

Lillian Daniel

Christmas day has passed, and now we are left with the wrapping paper, the empty boxes and perhaps a few empty hearts.


Dragging the Stars Down to Earth

Donna Schaper

You can always just gaze and notice the Cosmos where you are.


Gift-Wrapped

John Edgerton

It's good (I suppose) to grow out of the thrill of materialism, but I've lost something too.


Deposed

Tony Robinson

Bad news/ Good news: we have been deposed from our self-made thrones, brought down from the high ground where we judge others while assuring ourselves of our perfect virtue. 


Jesus Wonder

Jennifer Garrison Brownell

Like mothers in every time and place, Mary sang for comfort, for hope and for survival. Her song became his song. And his song became the world's.


Thin Places

Richard L. Floyd

Unexpected encounters with the Holy seem to happen in times of crisis.
