Do You Need to Attend Church?

By Paul Leavens In some Christian circles it’s in vogue to disassociate yourself from the local church.  People boast, “I’m a Christian but I’m not part of the institutional church.” Or, I’m a spiritual person but I’m not into organized religion.”  Some leave the impression they’ve grown beyond the need for regular worship or a sermon in a […]

Love and Possessiveness

By Ron Hull In one of his essays, C. S. Lewis illustrated how love and possessiveness are sometimes confused.

Left Behind

By Trudy Wischemann It’s been a rough couple of weeks in Lake Woebehere, my adopted home town. It started with another break-in and robbery of my home at the corner of Homassel and Alameda, the one with the weedy yard. I’d been trying to keep my attention on demolishing the weeds, but then I was […]

What you need is the God just beyond your understanding.” ­—Rami Shapiro As quoted in Barbara Brown Taylor’s Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others, 2019 By Trudy Wischemann Last week I wrote about my struggle to understand Easter, and […]

Jesus Here and Now
