A Change of Heart

Richard L. Floyd

The metaphorical heart is a matter of life and death. The heart is implicated in the choices of lovers and fools, and who among us hasn't been both at some time in our life?


Extravagance

Tony Robinson

Extravagance can scare us. It scared Judas. And extravagance—God's extravagance—can save us. Mary understood this and did not fear the extravagant mercy of God.


Souls in Prison

Kaji Douša

Maybe we start to accept the things we really should not, growing accustomed to being so enclosed that we risk forgetting what it means to be free—if we ever knew it.


Inseparable

Kenneth L. Samuel

The season of Lent is the season of love’s endurance. Love can endure disappointment, pain and even disloyalty. But love never endures the separation of termination.


From the Complaint Department

Mary Luti

How long, O Lord? We need the world you promise. We need you to vindicate our sticking with you all this time, to redeem our suffering and crown our deaths with life.


Rogue

Quinn G. Caldwell

God, your world is full of wonders and mysteries. Let me not be too quick to dismiss them, and let me, at least sometimes, believe them before it’s wise.


Saying So

Emily C. Heath

I didn’t learn about testimony from church. I learned about it from people in recovery who told me their stories when I was newly sober.


Sola Gratia

Jennifer Brownell

Maybe you struggle to be assured that grace is boundless and that you are sufficient just as you are. If so, take heart. You are not alone. I am with you. Many people are with you. And God, no matter what, is with you.


Holy Invitations

John A. Nelson

What is most real, most connected with the life-giving breath of Holy One is all around you, is with you now, ready to carry you to fullness of life.


Get a Move On

Talitha Arnold

Has your enthusiasm for Lent’s journey worn off? You can do it. The journey is hard, but keep going. Something like Easter is waiting.
