Why the Cross?

Vicki Kemper

"Why the cross?"

The Reluctant Giver

Jennifer Brownell

All due respect to the Apostle Paul, but I just don't agree with him.

One More Gift

Quinn G. Caldwell

What was separated in time for the people in today's passage is usually smooshed together in baptisms these days.

Indoor Voice

Mary Luti

God has an indoor voice.

When Cells Differentiate

Lillian Daniel

Cells differentiate, just like people do.

We Don't Have a Clue

Matt Fitzgerald

The world needs a church audacious enough to gather in the name of Christ, yet humble enough to say we don't quite know what we're talking about.

Social Media Diet for the New Year

Donna Schaper

Tony Robinson

Just when we thought we were safe in some gated community (there are a lot of different kinds of gates and fences), God moves into the neighborhood.

"The Church is Not a Building"

Richard L. Floyd

I do believe, in the words of the Avery/Marsh song, that "The church is not a building, the church is not a steeple, the church is not a resting place, the church is a people."

Talitha Arnold
