A Window and a Witness

Matt Fitzgerald

At my kids' school a police officer addressed the question of what to do when home alone. "Whatever else happens, don't answer the door."

A Clear Heart

Donna Schaper

Imagine how restored our salvation would be if we were less focused on ourselves, more intimate with God, and more fully human.

The Hearing Aid Revelation

Tony Robinson

I pondered this odd experience of finding what was lost. There was no finding it when I was all agitation, looking anxiously, frantically.

“I Still Have a Dream”

“I still have a dream . . .”

It's the Fear of New Life

Talitha Arnold

According to John, it was fear "of the Jews" that made the disciples huddle behind locked doors.  Not only have such statements spawned Christian anti-Semitism for centuries, but I think John got it wrong as to the root cause of their fear.

Eat What is Good

Bryn Smallwood Garcia

During Lent, I did not do any fasting, but I did try to eat more slowly, peacefully, mindfully.

The Last Laugh

Emily C. Heath

Two years from now Easter and April Fool's Day will coincide on April 1st.

Stay Put

Mary Luti

We admire seekers. We like the lone protagonist who struggles to attain God. But God isn't a reward, a prize at the finish line of striving.

Life and Liberty

Kenneth L. Samuel

The resurrection is about something more than life beyond the tomb. The resurrection is also about the liberation of those who've been revived.

Pious Amnesia

Lillian Daniel

Sometimes, a genuine experience of God becomes a pious amnesia. The newly inspired forget what they were like before.
