Perfect Pastors

Vince Amlin

Since I am a minister, people are always apologizing to me. When they drink or curse. When they talk about sex or anger.

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust

Kenneth L. Samuel

On this Ash Wednesday we are mindful of the ashes from which we were created. Amen.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

Lillian Daniel

Happy Fat Tuesday, everybody!

Good Morning

Kenneth L. Samuel

Joy comes when we understand and believe that dark times and dark situations cannot prevent the fulfillment of God's promise and progress in our lives.

Vacation Homes

Matt Laney

If you are in a tropical paradise or shivering in a frozen wasteland, clear off time for Ash Wednesday this week.

A New Valentine's Song

Donna Schaper

Valentine's Day is a holiday that many of us love to hate.

The Faith to Shut My Mouth

Matt Fitzgerald

I have tried to convince people of God's existence.

The Church that Plays Together

Molly Baskette

At church, the hub of much of our spiritual practice, how many of us talk exclusively about the "work" of the church? We often treat the stuff we do at church as a kind of bitter endurance contest.


Quinn G. Caldwell

We talk about welcoming people in terms of what we have that they might need.  And of course that's a good start. There's another good reason to welcome all, though: enlightened self-interest.  

Dress Up

Donna Schaper

I remember when you had to dress up to go to church.  It was fun in a way that today's uniforms are not.
