I recently began watching a TV show about passengers on an airplane who, unknowingly, disappear for five years while in flight. While they believe only minutes have passed, their friends and families have been without them for five years. (It’s a bizarre series, but I suppose it’s my escape from the heaviness of local and […]

Before He Was the Baptist

Mon, 06/14/2021 - 05:30

By Loretta Pehanich

“I dare you to eat a bug.” Was John the Baptist the kind of kid who might say that? As a mom, I’m curious about such things. When did he acquire a taste for locusts and wild honey? Let’s imagine John as a teen whose parents, aware of the prenatal prophesy, do everything possible to […]

Regeneration Through Cultivating Joy

Fri, 06/11/2021 - 05:30

By Marina Berzins McCoy

One of my earliest childhood memories is being about two or three years old, walking along a Florida beach with my parents. My father showed me a starfish that had washed up on the beach. He explained to me that if it lost one of its arms, it could over time regenerate them again. I […]

Strangers and the Funny Papers

Wed, 06/09/2021 - 05:30

By Shemaiah Gonzalez

I am thirsty. Not for water or coffee or tea but for conversation. And I’m not talking about the weather or the plague or politics. I’m talking about deep listening. The kind of conversation where I feel I know the other person better, that person knows me better, and I know myself better. It has […]

Three Ways to Respond When Life Goes a Different Direction

Mon, 06/07/2021 - 05:30

By Vinita Hampton Wright

After Ignatius of Loyola gave his life to God’s service, he imagined that he should go to Jerusalem to pray and do penance, make pilgrimage to the sites of Jesus’ life, and do God’s work among people there. Today still, many Christians feel the pull to walk where Jesus walked. We sense that this region […]

The Trinity and the Trumpet

Fri, 06/04/2021 - 05:30

By Becky Eldredge

I was about to walk downstairs when I heard a beautiful sound coming from my son’s room. I paused at the top of the landing to listen more carefully. While muffled due to his door being shut, I realized my son was practicing scales on his trumpet to prepare for his high school band audition. […]

Kintsugi and the Divine Potter

Wed, 06/02/2021 - 05:30

By Gretchen Crowder

Recently, I started the Spiritual Exercises again, and one of the first readings I reflected on was from Jeremiah. In this passage (18:1–9), God explains how he can rework and remold the house of Israel like the potter reworks the clay. As I opened my Bible and read through this passage, I was struck by […]
