Trading Guilt for Grace

Marchaé Grair

Divine One, extend your grace to me and help me extend that same grace to myself. Amen.


Do Not Fret (Easy for You to Say)

Talitha Arnold

Trust. Do good. Take delight. Commit to God’s way. Take the next step, and trust that God is with you.


Handle Your Business

Marilyn Pagán-Banks

The work of restorative justice teaches us that we can and should take the time to hear one another, to acknowledge any harm done and all hurt experienced, to create space to be held accountable, and to do the work necessary to restore the relationship.


Actively Waiting

John A. Nelson

Even now, while the mess and muddle seem to reign supreme, the Holy One is carrying the day.


Make Me a Living Blessing

Ashley Harness

Holy One, help me remember I am blessed so that I might be a living blessing.


A Simple Question

Emily C. Heath

I wonder what Jesus would ask congregations who have been kicking the metaphorical can down the road for years and years, bemoaning a culture that has passed them by, blaming a changing world for declining membership. “Do you want to get well?”


Yes. Period.

Jennifer Brownell

Dance and feast and laugh and shout and share the good news and love one another. Because our Savior says yes.


Unfinished Business

Richard L. Floyd

The Christian life is more like gardening than it is like cooking. You plant seeds, you water and tend your garden, and you wait for God to give the growth.


Planted

Molly Baskette

God, I’m thirsty. I long for rest. Show me the way to Your water, and give me permission to stay there. Amen.


Whose Body? Our Body!

Phiwa Langeni

What if the Body of Christ unapologetically cared for its mentally ill parts and its youthful parts and its kinky parts and its rural parts and its non-binary parts?
