Montage Sequence

Molly Baskette

Most of our spiritual progress, at least once we reach adulthood, is made by lurching from crisis to crisis, grief to grief, and somehow surviving all of them. 

Neither All Nor Nothing

Matt Fitzgerald

When death has the final word life is either a cheap gift expiring quickly or our only shot at an eternity's worth of meaning. It's all or nothing. 

God the Artist

Donna Schaper

Some of us imagine God is an artist.

Hail Mary

Matt Laney

Mary was an odd pick for the job of "mother of God."  

Nothing Much Happens Today

Emily C. Heath

What if this year we heard every story of Holy Week?

I Love a Parade

Vince Amlin

If you have never marched behind a band while waving to adoring crowds and proclaiming the good news of God's love, put it on your bucket list.

He Is Not Raisins

Matt Fitzgerald

When preachers speak about God we should distinguish between things that do not make sense and things we cannot make sense of.

Following the Light

Emily C. Heath

Our best intentions don't always win out, and by the time Lent rolls around the promises of Christmas are often long forgotten

Hold Fast

Vince Amlin

It's hard to hold fast to a vision, to turn dreams into reality or build something that wasn't there before.

God Still Rules

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.
