Ignoring the “mustn’t”

May 29th, 2016

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

I wonder how many of us continue to live under the “you mustn’t” and “don’t even try,” having believed whoever said it to us years ago. I wonder how much ministry might be possible if we overcame the “you can’t”s of our histories.

Topic: Administration

So then, how do I show gratitude? How can I show someone how much I appreciate what they have done for me? Is it enough to just say thank you? Is it enough to only reciprocate? Have I done my part in communicating this clearly?

We do not presume…

May 27th, 2016

By: Gregor Sneddon

Topic: Flesh made Word

Sometimes, I wonder if those of us glowing in our liberal, progressive, and self-empowered “inclusive” Church, are so afraid to offend, afraid to not be in control, afraid of the word “obedience,” or afraid to surrender our self-directed spiritualism, that we miss the pearl of great price. Can we really presume to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness?

May 26th, 2016

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

Have you ever prayed for a parking space? Have you ever considered the motivations that lie behind your prayers? Why do you pray what you pray? Are your prayers more about the life of Jesus, or the life of the self?

Change is the constant

May 26th, 2016

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

The church’s own sense of instability can open us to a new compassion for all of those who experience themselves as lost and struggling. And that sense of instability invites us to be more aware, and more generous, with what God has actually given us to offer the world’s need.

“The days are surely coming, says the Lord”

May 25th, 2016

By: Trevor Freeman

Topic: Citizens of Heaven

The story of God is new life after death. The story of God is the story of hope, even when there should be none. The Spirit has a role for you and me in the world that is coming, even if we don’t know what that role is.

Washing windows

May 23rd, 2016

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Our lives, like windows, gradually accumulate dust and dirt that needs to be cleaned.
