Your Verse

Posted by Shelli Ragle on

One of my favorite poems is Walt Whitman’s “O Me! O Life!” The best part of it, for me, is this: …That you are here—that life exists and identity, That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse. — “O Me! O Life!”, from Leaves of...

Love Can Be Funny

Posted by Luke Bedford on

Love can be a funny thing. For so long we dream about finding that right person and falling madly in love, only to realize that love looks nothing like the way our society portrays it. We find out that love doesn’t just happen. Love takes time, effort and, sometimes, a lot of energy...

At ≠ To

Posted by Scott Hiney on

As my faith in Christ has matured over the past five or so years, I’ve really begun to see how affected I am by the words Christians use, both with fellow Christians and non-believers. How we speak to those around us obviously speaks volumes to our place with Christ, but also to our love...

The Day I Met Johnny

Posted by Rebecca Spence on

Love Sets Us Apart

Posted by Andrea Bailey on

I jumped out of bed, startled by the morning light. My alarm hadn’t gone off. Quickly, I grabbed my phone to see why. My phone would not even turn on. It was unplugged, and the battery was dead. About that time, my sweet teenager stuck her head in my room to ask to borrow a sweater, and I...
