Only Wonder

Tony Robinson

Take a break today—maybe for the entire Advent season—from concepts and lists, from judgments and bickering. Only wonder. Fall to your knees at the wonder of it all.


It's a Wonderful Life

Donna Schaper

O how I wish people would stop separating religion and politics, like God refused to separate heaven and earth during incarnation


A Christmas Letter from Paul

Vince Amlin

'Tis the season for airy epistles filled with the polished perfections of lapsed friends and intentionally-distant relations.


Table Etiquette

Marilyn Pagán-Banks

Jesus sets the ultimate welcome table.  A table where there is no seat without honor, without grace, without love.


Tears

Matt Laney

Christmas can be a teary time. Financial hardships, family turmoil, grief and loss, all become more acute during the holidays.


"Finish, then, Thy new creation!"

Richard L. Floyd

It is humbling to imagine that we have some part to play in the completion of God's work.


Practice

Quinn G. Caldwell

It's work, no doubt about it, this practicing for God, this learning to recognize the signs of God with us.  


Living Inside the Miracle

Matt Fitzgerald

People complain about the New Century Hymnal. "They changed the words!"


Belonging

Kenneth Samuel

The need to belong is one of the deepest needs of the human heart.


Child of Blessing, Child of Promise

Emily C. Heath

It's up to the adults in children's lives to lift them up, and bless them on their path. And Advent is as good a time as any to start.
