Grief Poem - Weeds

Hello, God. It's me, Mara

Pastor's Corner: Invite love and the rest will follow

Hello, God. It's Me, Mara.

Out Our Way: Come back to me - Hosea 3

Imagining Heaven: The end of the earth will be rebirth

Hello, God. It's me, Mara.

Out Our Way: Thanks, Mom! - Matthew 23:37

Out our way, a lot of folks raise chickens, and so Jesus’ allusion to a mother hen’s love of other chicks speaks volumes. Up on the Tiger we didn’t have chickens, but we had a lot of mama cows and calves — we saw the same thing. As...
