All Things Are Yours

Kenneth L. Samuel

Our world is full of countless either/or choices.

He Knew

Mary Luti

Nothing thrown back to wound or destroy—this is the gospel whose ministers we are. Offer it to someone today.

"You Love Me. You Really Love Me."

Matt Fitzgerald

We all long for affirmation. We ask "Am I worthwhile? Am I a valuable? Am I beloved?"

Who Put You in Charge?

Emily C. Heath

Churches say they want strong leaders capable of providing guidance in difficult situations. Until they don't. And, often publicly, the pastor is reminded of their "place."

Silence and Mystery

John A. Nelson

Many of us remember the King James translation of this verse: "… a still small voice."


Quinn G. Caldwell

When a visitor first comes into your church, what do you think she thinks it smells like?  Or, since you may not have much control over that, what do you think she thinks it feels like?

Tell No One

Anthony B. Robinson

Why did Jesus order those he healed and those he taught not to celebrate him?

Big Boy Pants

Matt Laney

"Gird up your loins!" Chances are you've run across that in the Bible more than once.  If not you've really been missing out. Rarely do we have the opportunity to use "gird" and "loins" in the same sentence.

Of Faith and Flavor

John Nelson

It's odd to praise chocolate during Lent. My apologies, if you've given it up.

What's That on Your Face?

John Edgerton

I envy the conviction of people with extensive tattoos.  From twenty feet away their hands or arms or faces mark them as different, distinct, committed to living out their path.
