"My special place is a small brook in a green glade, a circle of quiet from which there is no visible sign of human beings. There’s a natural stone bridge over the brook, and I sit there, dangling my legs and looking through the foliage at the sky reflected in the water, and things slowly come back into perspective."
A Circle of Quiet

In hopes of shining a little light, I’m gonna be doing a live story time on Sunday mornings throughout this time of social distancing. So, if you’d like to join my kids and me for a story, some encouragement, and more, I’ll be going live this Sunday morning at 11AM central both on Instagram and Facebook! This week, I’ll be reading #WhenGodMadeYou... I hope you’ll join us. And please share this with your friends and tag anybody you know who might find this helpful or encouraging. #SundayStoryTime #picturebook #socialdistancing #church

A Liturgical Hat-Tip to the Altar Call - Convergent Books

"Liturgical Christians, especially we zealous converts, sometimes forget that Jesus does not need our rituals, our traditions, or our rhetorical theologies to do the saving and sanctifying work that God desires to be worked in all people."

Preston Yancey is on the blog today talking about altar calls, liturgy, and evangelicalism.

I started life as an Evangelical. My family attended a Southern Baptist church, and though I left that tradition, I left knowing it had laid hold of one central tenet that my current liturgical home still fumbles. I started to question aspects of my Baptist faith in college and eventually found a ho…

On Letting Go of Our Poverty Myths Posted on 03.01.15 by Addie Zierman Most of what I know about poverty are myths. What I know about poverty is wide-angles and broad strokes. It’s filtered and fictionalized. I know the story of the good, hard-working, honorable poor, against whom the deck has been…

When Your Spiritual Path Looks More Like a Maze - Convergent Books

Michelle M. DeRusha writes on the blog today about how spiritual journeys are often much more complicated than we think they should be.

The truth is, we often define what a proper spiritual path should look like. We expect that a “real” Christian’s path will be straight, more or less. We might allow the occasional misstep or wrong turn, but we recoil from the person who trips over a significant stumbling stone or wanders a circuitou…
