Pester

Donna Schaper

The word "pester" is so interesting.  It means to bother.  To nag.  To bug.  Often when it comes to justice, we use less interesting verbs.


First to Return

Tony Robinson

Because Jesus has made it home, because he is the first to return from the dead, you and I can come out of hiding, running toward home, laughter in our mouths, hearts on fire.


Childlike not Childish!

Richard L. Floyd

Something about Jesus himself was so compelling that he inspired many of those who met him to immediately stop what they were doing and put their complete trust in him.


Asking the Right Question

Martin B. Copenhaver

As Christians we are assured that the good old days, no matter how good, are nothing compared to what God has in store for us.


God's Justice: Not Optional

John A. Nelson

Might not we do well to learn, from God's example, to burn with indignant fury until we have delivered our sister or brother from the hand of the oppressor?


Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Kaji Dousa

God doesn't need a comfortable spot. God can, and will, go anywhere you need God to be.


"Scared" and "Sacred" are Sisters

Lillian Daniel

If you follow the bestseller list, you've seen Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton.  


Hell is Other People

Matt Laney

The Pharisee in Jesus' parable verbalizes a longer list of "other people" with whom he is happy to disassociate. In doing so, he unwittingly debases himself.


God is Still Speaking--In Everyone's Life

Kim Sorrells

When I was serving as a hospital chaplain during seminary I often had people tell me "you look too young to be a chaplain!"


Safety, Pinned

Molly Baksette

God does not promise us safety. What God does, is invite us into the safety of each other, if we will accept the challenge and call.
