The Blessing of Tears

Though this is a season of joy, the reality is that it can also be a time of lament and grief. Tears are not incompatible with faith.* *From Advent in Plain Sight, a daily devotional by Jill Duffield

Gates, Doors & Opportunities

This Sunday we step into the liminal space of Advent, the threshold between what is and what will be. "So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates." -Matthew 24:33

Fidgets & Rocking Chairs

Jesus says, "Do not worry about your life." But does he know how much has to get done to be ready for Thanksgiving next Thursday?

Both Sides of the Coin

All the others gave what they’ll never miss; she gave extravagantly what she couldn’t afford—she gave her all. —Mark 12:44b MSG

What’s the Bottom Line?

Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength. ’The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31
