Home Truths

Richard L. Floyd

Even in the church that bears Christ's name we often can't hear what Jesus is saying to us because he is such a familiar figure. We are too comfortable with him.


Quinn G. Caldwell

I start every Sunday morning sermon that I preach with these words from Psalm 19; I’m sure you’ve heard other preachers do the same.

It Takes Longer

John Nelson

I know that I'm being made into the image of Christ. It's just taking longer than I thought it would.



Donna Schaper

What then is our armor?  It is our vulnerability.

As I Ponder the Logistics of Noah's Ark

Lillian Daniel

Imagine what it smelled like on Noah's ark.

Mary Luti

Little changes until we stop telling the story of our innocence and their guilt.

Matt Fitzgerald

Emily C. Heath

When I was a hospice chaplain I saw a lot of people die with regrets.

Lillian Daniel

Kenneth L. Samuel
