Think Outside the Water Bottle

Donna Schaper

We become worthy of our call by treasuring our water and remembering, always, in every way, who has and who has not.

Eleven Words

Martin B. Copenhaver

These eleven words are important to say—and powerful—not just at such critical moments, but at other times and in other circumstances.

Talitha Arnold

For Those Who Are Doing Just Fine

Quinn G. Caldwell

When all is well in your world, Psalm 86 becomes a proclamation of this fact, an acknowledgement that all life is precarious.


Quinn G. Caldwell

Sometime soon you'll have to say goodbye to somebody.  It's worth doing well, for it's all about faith.

Donna Schaper

Elissa Johnk

Lifted Up

Matt Fitzgerald

Jesus promised "When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people to myself."

Robert Ochoa
