Learning to Love the Bomb

Molly Baskette

How can we, in this life, accept sorrow, even keening sorrow, as the consequence of having really loved someone, and continuing to love them even though they’re on a plane we cannot reach?


Good Things Travel by Word of Mouth

John Edgerton

Tell one person today about how God has been a blessing in your life.


Resistance Training

Vince Amlin

Everywhere we turn, we are offered opportunities for resistance training.


Jesus' Life Matters

Matt Laney

Help us to recognize that when we lift up those who have been knocked down, everyone is blessed.


Remember Me?

Martin B. Copenhaver

I remember the first time my grandmother was not able to recognize me.


Three Mothers, Three Fathers and a Bridal Fitting

Donna Schaper

Many adopted people don't want to know or do want to know or can't decide what they want to know.  There is no right or wrong here.


Whom Will You Trust?

John A. Nelson

Here's a psalm for every election season: don't trust them. You know who I mean. The ones who employ every means at their disposal to get from you something even more precious than your vote. They want your trust; your hope.


Recognized

Jennifer Garrison Brownell

For a weekend, it's fun to take on another persona, but being a Christian every single day is a whole other story – all that loving everyone and feeding the hungry and turning the other cheek can wear a person out. 


Riders

Quinn G. Caldwell

They had looked around at the state of the world, at how many people were living in poverty housing or no housing, at how many Elijahs were sleeping underfed beneath broom trees, and they had decided to do something about it.  Like Elijah, they had decided to head out into the wilderness and not stop until they met God.


Sinners

Emily C. Heath

And so, I say this freely: I'm a sinner. And so are you. And so are we all. Because none of us is perfect, and none of us always gets it right.
