Lord, teach us to pray.

September 29th, 2014

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

Were you ever taught how to pray? Were you ever taught what prayer is, or why we are called to pray? Were you ever showed how to listen for God’s answer? What if we echoed the question posed by the disciples “Lord, teach us to pray”?

the Personal Care Home

September 28th, 2014

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Saints in action: The staff who work at the care home are definitely called to this unique and impressive ministry. I hope that when my time comes to be in a care home that it will still be a place where Christian love is fully lived out.

Editing our children’s reality

September 26th, 2014

By: Rachel Kessler

Topic: Parental Ponderings

September 24th, 2014

By: Eileen Scully

Topic: Liturgy

As I look across the country, I see examples of how holy women and men are being remembered and celebrated. Who are the others?

You will respect my authoritah!

By: Naomi Miller

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

By what right do we come?  By the right of our education and training? the authority of our ordination?  By the strength of the 2am rewrite because the Holy Spirit wouldn’t let us sleep?  By the power of God whose presence in our own lives permits nothing less?
