Good Friday

Vicki Kemper

Just what is so good about Good Friday?

Maundy Thursday

Donna Schaper

What do we mean by bodily theology, the kind that demands our all: heart, soul, mind?

The Final Lap

Vince Amlin

How do you cope when you get through one challenge only to find an even larger one on the other side?


Quinn G. Caldwell

God's hoping for a lot more from you than just good public manners. Isaiah says God's given you—you!—as a light to the nations.

I Met Jesus and My Life Is Not Better

Tony Robinson

Being touched and blessed by Jesus may not mean our lives are suddenly successful, as society defines success.


Quinn G. Caldwell

On Palm Sunday, Jesus starts a very difficult journey. He's about to walk a hard road to a terrible place.

Lord, Should We Go Target Shooting?

Matt Fitzgerald

Donna Schaper

Same God

Matt Laney
