Memorizing Scripture: How to Make God’s Word Part of You

Peter Edman

Memorization has been on my mind and on my task list recently—including preparing a list of the top ten Bible passages everyone should memorize. One candidate for that top-ten list of memory verses is Pauls reminder in Philippians 4:8 to fill your mind with those things that are good. ...

How to Be Nourished by God’s Word

Ann-Margret Hovsepian

In C.S. Lewis’ fantastic Chronicles of Narnia , the description of the arrival of Spring—prompted by the approach of the great Aslan—always gives me a thrill. Peter, Susan and Lucy head out to find the King and their search is rewarded. The forces of evil that locked the ...

What is a Biblical Response to Injustice?

Katy Callahan

A few days after the 2016 presidential election, I thought of the time Peter cut off the high priest’s servant’s ear as Jesus was being arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane (John 18:10). Many of us with differing priorities for justice have spat venom at each other before ...

Solitude: How to Be Renewed by God’s Presence

Andrew Hood

I used to think I could check the “solitude” box on the spiritual disciplines list because I’m an introvert. But it’s not that simple. People who love to sing aren’t always worshipping. People who love to be alone aren’t always in solitude.  Solitude is not escape ...
