The Deep End

Vince Amlin

Faith rarely asks us to stand flat-footed with our heads above water. It beckons us to a point where we can't touch.


Mary Luti

He doesn't know who he is. He doesn't know who anyone is. Where is he if he isn't here? Who is he if he isn't who he was? 

How Much More

Vicki Kemper

Jesus doesn't say anything about dialing back our desires. He doesn't tell us what we should want. And he certainly doesn't suggest we might not deserve what we long for.

Murk and Luminescence

Matt Fitzgerald

God sees straight into your heart. God sees the awful, cringeworthy parts. And She does not say, "What's wrong with you?"

Everything Has a Season

Donna Schaper

Death is part of life. My brother Jesse is irreplaceable and he is gone.


Tony Robinson

It is the truth that God loves the world, is for all creatures, and is present with us in every endeavor to make real that love in concrete ways.

"Tried and Found Wanting"

Richard L. Floyd

God tries and tests all of us Jesus followers, as we go about our business in the world.

Snug as a Bug

John Edgerton

I know what I am supposed to do, but I wiggle out of it.  And very quickly my life falls into a state of disarray.

John Nelson

It can be awfully hard to see how my convictions separate me from God. It can be awfully easy to believe terribly untrue things.

Donna of the Night

Kaji Douša

Several hours with my shero last week taught me something new about Psalm 134.
