Two Senses

Quinn G. Caldwell

There's not a lot of room left in the world for wondering these days.  When was the last time you said, "I wonder what . . ."  or "I wonder how . . ." or "I wonder who . . ." and didn't just head straight for Wikipedia?


God Bless Us Every One

Maren Tirabassi

Charles Dickens reminds us that God can use remarkable dreams to open a person's heart.


In Common

Mary Luti

It may be the thing we long for most . . .to let go of our aggression and fear and whatever else in us keeps us tied to violence, and bend together over a child in shared wonder and gratitude.


Restoration

Kenneth L. Samuel

The power of Advent is the hope of restoration.


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.
