Out of the Depths

Emily C. Heath

One of the things I love about the Psalms is that they do not try to make it all better. Instead, they give us honesty.


Quinn G. Caldwell

Job. Few people in the Bible are more eloquent or, frankly, more right in what they're saying.  

Sleep, Play and Worship

Tony Robinson

Sleep: what a great gift God has given us!

Rebuking Jesus

Matthew Laney

Sometimes I think Jesus, being God's son and everything, just doesn't understand the problems of everyday people.

Our Dwelling Place

Kenneth L. Samuel

Our locations change from time to time.  But isn't it good to know that in the spirit of God's welcoming embrace, we can always come home?

Chained… And Yet Unhindered

Martin B. Copenhaver

Each one of us is limited—by our circumstances, by our limited gifts, by character flaws, or even by chains—and yet the Holy Spirit still can be at work in and through us. 

Sometimes a Sheep

Tony Robinson

For some the whole sheep thing is hard, a downgrade. Sheep are dumb. Sheep stand around going "Baa, baa." Sheep are passive. Sheep are dependent. "I'm no sheep."


Donna Schaper

We think disease is something that needs a pill or a chemical or a drug company. What if disease was more appropriately defined?

The Poor Are Not Lucky

Lillian Daniel

I have heard rich people say that the poor are lucky. But I have yet to hear a poor person say it.

Look at it!

Maren Tirabassi

There are things that poison life …. The first step and the only chance to heal them is to name them.
