Can We Please Talk About Something Else?

John Edgerton

Although we are allowed to have favorites among scripture, we're not allowed to ignore any of it, especially not the parts we find difficult.


Functional Atheism

Molly Baskette

One of the great sicknesses of the 21st century is our solitariness, our isolation from each other and from God.


Joseph's Tears

Mary Luti

Sometimes we have to trust the sufficiency of tears.


Made to Rest

Kenneth L. Samuel

The image of the Energizer Bunny is cute when applied to batteries, but quite dangerous when applied to living creatures.


Costly Grace

Ron Buford

Does someone in your life need your forgiveness? Is that person you?


Oily

Quinn G. Caldwell

This type of thing is exactly why I don't understand biblical literalists.


A Loaded Statement and the Benefit of the Doubt

Lillian Daniel

Sometimes when Christians say, "I'll pray for you," it's a loaded statement.


Beating Up Brother

Matthew Laney

Wouldn't it be nice if, when people heard the word "Christian," they thought "Oh you mean those people who are all about peace, non-violence, conflict resolution and love?"  


Knee-deep

Alison J. Buttrick Patton

When trouble strikes, it is impulse to ask, "Why me?"  It's something of a spiritual discipline to ask instead, "What's it like for others?


Gaps

Mary Luti

God demands change, but it can seem like a set-up. Doesn't God know I'm a walking gap between resolution and deed?
