From Madness to Stillness

Even as we celebrate the freedom that was granted to formerly enslaved people in our country, we are reminded that not all people in our world or even in our society are truly free. In so many ways and in so many forms there are still many people in our world today who are not granted equal freedom, or given equal access to resources.

Thoughts and Prayers?

The story of Paul and Silas trapped in a prison cell reminds us that even when there seems to be no way out, we can cry out to God and God will answer. But Scripture also challenges us that prayer should never be used as an excuse for inaction, or as a cover for our own complicity in injustice.

Get Up!

While we may not be able to raise the dead as Jesus and Peter did, the witness and testimony of those who have gone on before us lives on in the people they loved and cared for, and in the acts of love they carried out for others. As we follow their example and walk in the way of love and compassion, we keep their legacy alive.
