Elizabeth Glass Turner ~ On Prayer: Do You Need to Move On?

March 19, 2019

Weeding and praying go hand in hand. I tug and clear and get dirty and think and talk to God and process my thoughts and feelings and listen to the birds and untangle morning glories. And God weeds my soul and cultivates my soil and could, like in the cemetery Easter morning, be mistaken for a gardener.

Michelle Bauer ~ An Invitation to Joy: Serving Well

March 16, 2019

Today we encounter two men, Timothy and Epaphroditus, who have chosen to believe what Paul has taught them about joy. They don’t just believe it, they are putting into action the things they’ve learned. Their stories serve as perfect examples of how serving well leads to joy.

This realization of brokenness is one of the greatest gifts we can ever receive.

Elizabeth Glass Turner ~ Blood, Ash, Tears: The Ashiest of Days

March 5, 2019

As recently as 1941 the President wore a black arm band when his mother died. What is this impulse for a mark of sorrow, grief, repentance, confession? Why are strangers at train stations asking for this? In our culture that let black arm bands of mourning drift down to the floor, an old practice, a dated practice to be left by the wayside?
