Doubt and grace

August 26th, 2016

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

In my family, we have a saying that we referred to often when it felt like life is falling apart: “Things have a habit of working out.” But of course, this saying is only a nudge, it isn’t the full truth. Life does sometimes fall apart. But “God is not helpless among the ruins.” Things don’t always work out. But there is grace.

Home church

Topic: Everyday Christianity

I remain eternally (literally) grateful for the church and the Church that are home to me – I remain eternally grateful for the home that Jesus promises me.

Trinities work within our own lives. We can find them endlessly.

The divine singing

August 16th, 2016

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

God’s song is always being sung. Sometimes we don’t hear it through the noise of our lives. Yet the outer and inner chaos of life never stops the singing, nor does it thwart the loving presence of God.

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Do we ever really leave home? Can we have more than one home? Is home a place or a state of being?

Thank you

Topic: Children’s Ministry

As you prepare for the upcoming year with children, may your understanding be filled with the light of the resurrected Christ. May there be that much love in what you do: love that is given to you, and love that comes from you. Thanks to you, the lamp of your church’s commitment to children cannot be extinguished. Never stop.

The quotes that mean much to us remind us how God continues to speak to us all today—and throughout history—through existing words that interconnect over time and space.
