Highlights

The Church Roof

December 21st, 2014

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

if I were to sum up my ministry of the past 5 years, it would be by talking about the church roof: because it symbolizes a vital and healthy community. Realistically, a dying congregation doesn’t focus on the roof; a living congregation commits to the roof as a shelter for their ministry.


Advent 4: It All Comes Tumbling Down

December 17th, 2014

By: Tay Moss

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

The lectionary path through Advent B feels like a four-sided die skittering across a board game. It tumbles through the four-facets in the order of Mark-Mark-John-Luke-Matthew. Each possible landing leads to a very different past and thus a very different future.


Buying BullSh*t.

December 16th, 2014

By: Kyle Norman

Topic: Pop Culture Piety

How does a stunt attempting to expose empty consumerism help us reflect on the true gift of the Christ Child to us.


The Short Short Story

December 15th, 2014

By: Laura Marie Piotrowicz

Topic: Everyday Christianity

Could you convey a life experience, or a biblical message, in an extremely short story? Every word counts!


Pray without ceasing: The Daily Office

December 15th, 2014

By: Eileen Scully

Topic: Liturgy

The Liturgy Task Force of Faith, Worship, and Ministry is working on revisions to our authorized liturgical texts. In this entry, Task Force member Richard Leggett provides some background on practices of daily prayer, and introduces a new resource for Morning and Evening Prayer


Grandma

December 10th, 2014

By: Martha Tatarnic

Topic: Only One Thing

Grandma is now sharing in God’s eternal life, and it’s not even just about that. It’s about the possibility of what our lives are for. It’s about a God who chooses to be powerful in our world because now and again there is an open heart that finds the capacity to say yes. Let it be with me according to your word.


Preaching Advent 3: Christmas needs Pentecost

December 8th, 2014

By: Dell Bornowsky

Topic: The Preachers’ Table

We tell children that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday. But the specialness of that birthday, above all others, remains hidden until we tell the rest of his story, particularly Pentecost.
