Different in the World
allsaintsindy

"God expects justice and righteousness and laments especially the failure of leaders to establish such communities.

Forgive as You have been Forgiven
allsaintsindy

“Jesus asks us to repent of the ways we hurt one another and invites us at the same time to forgive others. To forgive the ones who have hurt us.

Cancel Culture
allsaintsindy

"Canceling those who step outside the lines, with whom we disagree, troublemakers, well, it seems to be a bipartisan sport. And of course, its a very human inclination.

Joy of All Who Sorrow
allsaintsindy

"Mary looks out at us from paintings and icons, from statues, with a seriousness, a compassion, that pierces our souls, drawing us toward her.

Between Swear and Prayer
allsaintsindy

Words of Consolation
allsaintsindy

"I wonder what it would look like to live with this kind of hope today. How do we practice hope? Surely it doesn't look like cramming as many of us as possible into a church building and proclaiming that if we trust God enough none of us will get sick.

Spiritual Medicine
