In Between Years

Emily C. Heath

In the world of the church, tomorrow starts a brand new year.


They

Quinn G. Caldwell

If you're a member of the UCC,  we've been working on inclusive language for God for a long time, playing with pronouns in order to recognize that God is both many-gendered and beyond gender.


Complicating Grace

Mary Luti

Saying grace on Thanksgiving Day is complicated.


What's Your Story?

Kenneth L. Samuel

The story has now been given to you and me.  If it is to stay relevant, it must be infused with a real sense of our own passion, experience and expression.


Jesus is Magic

Molly Baskette

My reluctance to put God to the test has been superseded by my need for a God who can and will be made manifest in my life in godlike ways.


Pester

Donna Schaper

The word "pester" is so interesting.  It means to bother.  To nag.  To bug.  Often when it comes to justice, we use less interesting verbs.


First to Return

Tony Robinson

Because Jesus has made it home, because he is the first to return from the dead, you and I can come out of hiding, running toward home, laughter in our mouths, hearts on fire.


Childlike not Childish!

Richard L. Floyd

Something about Jesus himself was so compelling that he inspired many of those who met him to immediately stop what they were doing and put their complete trust in him.


Asking the Right Question

Martin B. Copenhaver

As Christians we are assured that the good old days, no matter how good, are nothing compared to what God has in store for us.


God's Justice: Not Optional

John A. Nelson

Might not we do well to learn, from God's example, to burn with indignant fury until we have delivered our sister or brother from the hand of the oppressor?
