By: David Burrows

Topic: Easter(n) Pilgrims

Lord, don’t give me strength

Puppies, anniversaries, and the thread of life

August 8th, 2017

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

“To everything there is a season,” goes the well-worn wisdom of Scripture, “and a time and a purpose for everything under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1) These words ring as comforting and true in the liminal times, when we are crossing a threshold from one part of our lives to an obviously different part.
