Highlights

The one I have not read yet

March 30th, 2015

By: Kate Newman

Topic: Children’s Ministry

The soup is starting to steam. Above the stove, I glance at the crucifix I put there. The crucifixion is an account told endlessly since it occurred. Those two familiar lines – one crossing the other. Today when I look at the cross I see one line that represents time, the other that shows me place. The truth of Christ meets us in the exact time and place in which we find ourselves. So, the way to deeply understand the Gospels is to read them and read them again.


Praying our baptismal vows (Part 6)

March 29th, 2015

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

The sacrament of baptism is more than a one-day celebration; it is a life-long commitment. This week: “Will you strive to safeguard the integrity of God’s creation, and respect, sustain and renew the life of the Earth?”


Buying the magic

March 26th, 2015

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Do I regret taking my children to a Disney production on March Break? Readers may judge, but I will no doubt invest in other shamelessly corporate production consumables, imagining that a modern day parent has to give in to some of the junk. But I’m glad that I have a people and a prayer to which I can turn (repent) in order to receive true sustenance.


Fairytale determinism

March 24th, 2015

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

Are our lives, like those of fairy-tale characters, pre-determined? Do we take Paul’s statement about predestination in Ephesians chapter 1 as amounting to nothing more than a fait accompli? How do we Read the Bible as living and active text for our lives?


Branches and coats: Palm Sunday 2015

March 24th, 2015

By: Dawn Leger

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

If you prepare the liturgy well, there is no need to preach, except to draw people’s focus to the liturgy.


Praying our baptismal vows (part 5)

March 22nd, 2015

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

The sacrament of baptism is more than a one-day celebration; it is a life-long commitment. Each Sunday of Lent I will offer a reflection on one of our baptismal vows. This week: “Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?”


Choices

March 21st, 2015

By: Naomi Miller

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

In these readings for Lent 5 I see story of choices, laid out for us. God chooses covenant. God chooses death and resurrection. God, clearly, chooses us.
The immensity of that is really more than I can get my head around.
