The Trinity and the Mission of the Spirit

August 17, 2016

The Trinity and the Mission of the Spirit Human memories are not reliable. We might think we remember what happened, or we equate our own interpretation of events with the truth.

October 14, 2008

Devotion for October 14, 2008 We have been studying accounts of some women in the Old Testament whose stories are less well known. Now we turn our attention to women who have “small roles” in the Gospels. The culture—political, religious, and legal—of the first century was patriarchal and male-centered. Women were typically viewed as having...

Disappointment and Ambition

October 15, 2013

Disappointment and Ambition In Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, Anne of Green Gables, Anne observes, “Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot.

The End of Tears in Our Eyes

October 11, 2017

The End of Tears in Our Eyes The eyes are the organs that allow us to enjoy the sense of sight. But they are, of course, much more than that. The old proverb describes the eyes as the “windows to the soul.” This is an apt description, for our eyes express some of our most deeply felt emotions. When we are excited, they grow wide; when we...
