Off to See the Wizard Lori Heine I believe a lot of our spiritual dryness and deadness stems from our hesitancy in trusting that God is bigger than our antagonists.

Inclusivity: More Than a Word Rev. Paul Turner How can we make EVERYONE welcome in our churches and communities?
Will These Supremes Care About “Equal Justice for All?” Bob Minor I can’t trust this Court to do the legally right thing.
Boy Scouts Demand Moral and Sexual Straightness Warren J. Blumenfeld Well, it seems that the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) requires not merely moral straightness, but sexual and gender straightness as well.

From the Pulpit
Via Creativa: What Now? Free Yourself! Rev. Candace Chellew We prefer our bondage because freedom is scarier than security – because the devil we know, even though he’s still a devil, feels safer than the devil – or the angels – we don’t know.
Via Creativa: What Now? Keeping the Main Thing, the Main Thing Rev. Candace Chellew This is the message we must send to ourselves, and to the world that we are fine, that we are loved. That’s keeping the main thing, the main thing.
Via Creativa: What Now? Breaking the Rules Rev. Candace Chellew Check in with yourself and see what unwritten rules you’re following that are keeping you from reaching out in compassion to the world around. I invite you also, to review those rules that keep you from extending that same kind of compassion to yourself.
Via Creativa: What Now? Have Faith Rev. Candace Chellew Faith is the unshakeable knowledge that no matter what, no matter how many shattered hopes and dreams we have, no matter how many snakes tear at our hearts and our souls, all shall be well, all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.
