Too Much of What We Want

Kenneth L. Samuel

Often, it is not denial that chastens us, but permission.

A Christian Story

Matt Fitzgerald

In our violent world just how crazy is Christ's insistence that we practice peace?


Donna Schaper

My granddaughter told her mother that she didn't like her mother's "workiness."  Eva is 4.


Tony Robinson

What does God require of me, of us, right at this moment? We are in the presence of the living Christ, what now?

Turning the World Upside Down

Richard L. Floyd

When I look around at our world today I long for it to be "turned upside down." I wonder what would it take for us to be accused of "turning the world upside down?"

Does it Work?

Jennifer Brownell

The labyrinth worked as sacred space, as beautiful creation, as invitational circle, as formation of community, as joy that bubbles into laughter, as holy ground.

Lightness of Being

John A. Nelson

Healing can happen.

Rooting for Gladness

Kaji Douša

A person should not have to feel that they embark on a battle of spiritual warfare each time they come into our church.

And Don't Forget Your Sweatshirt!

Lillian Daniel

A mother makes a cake for a special occasion and she tells her two kids, "That cake is not for you. It's for the church supper tonight. So do not touch it!"

Matt Laney

You might be running from God by avoiding some helpful task, person or life choice. Or maybe you are running because you've forgotten how to be still. In any case, aren't you tired?
