  • Rainbow Man September 20, 2019
    Maybe looking people in the eye and telling them, 'God loves you irrevocably' won’t soften our hearts and end all harm. I dunno. But let’s try anyway and see what happens.
  • Inheritance September 19, 2019

  • Use of Sense September 18, 2019

  • The Leaf September 13, 2019
    Does the leaf know the changing seasons, the looming changes, the shifting light? Does it welcome the transformation? Do we notice and have the courage to welcome change?
  • Always Dealing with God September 12, 2019
    In crisis, we might be tempted to blame or belittle God. But Eugene Peterson suggests that current events call us to 'immediate awareness that … we are always dealing with God.'
  • A Serious Question for a Horrible Day September 11, 2019
    On this day, of all days, we repent of our divisive ways, we commit to cooperate instead of conspire, and we find our security in the God of Many Names and No Borders.
