Age as Accomplishment

Lillian Daniel

Bless this youth-obsessed culture with the knowledge that age can be a blessing, not to be taken for granted

My gods

Matt Laney

If I asked what you believe in most profoundly, what you have given your heart to, what would you say?

Molly Baskette

When people we love get sick or die out of the natural order of things, we are stung anew by the awareness that we're only here for a little while.

Whatever Makes You Ready

Jennifer Brownell

Different conflicts call for different approaches to peace, as much as different weather calls for different footwear.

Marchaé Grair

Mary Luti

The Girls at Camp Take God Seriously

Matt Fitzgerald

Dear God, keep me from speaking your name, unless I mean it.

The Next Reformation

Donna Schaper

This month we begin a year of celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
