#sitbyme

In the Magazine we’re looking at worship and its intersection with our lives. In this piece, Carrie Willard invites us to sit with her and calls upon us to extend the invitation to others – #sitbyme

Why do we worship?

In the Magazine this month, we’re exploring worship. In this piece, George Clifford looks at how Neibuhr’s summary of the purpose of worship as the increase of the love of God and neighbor has consistently guided his ministry.

Speaking to the Soul: Advent!

The inclination to do violence is strong, but “That day, ” and “these things” require gentleness, restraint, the keeping of our souls. As we enter Advent, be sober and alert. Don’t let yourself get caught up in blame, revenge, violence. And light your candle. Hold it high.
