What Do You Want?

Emily C. Heath

When things in our lives are hardest, sometimes that's a sign that we need to take a first step towards healing.

Hell is a Place Where the Visitors Wear Name Tags

Lillian Daniel

Everything we do in church ought to include the possibility that this is not a show we put on for one another, but a powerful connection between all of humanity and God.

Remembering Names

Matt Laney

Scripture says our names are "engraved on the palms of [God's] hands" not unlike the tattooed names we find on people today as statements of love and fidelity.

Talking Points

Vince Amlin

Turn on any cable news network or talk radio station and you'll hear the same stories told in the same way over and over. Politicians and pundits, journalists and broadcasters all seem to be reading from an identical script. Because they are.


Tony Robinson

It is one of life's basics. You don't mock people who are vulnerable.


Emily C. Heath

The Better Angels of our Nature

Richard L. Floyd

The truth is, after Election Day we will have new leaders, but many of the same old problems of race and class and injustice will remain.


Mary Luti

Heights of Humility

Kenneth Samuel

God often elevates us to low places

Slumber and Sleep

Vicki Kemper

Pastors or parents, partners or friends, teachers or managers, all of us are sheep in shepherds' clothing.
