John Dominic Crossan and Sarah Sexton Crossan: In the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus

Day1

In April of 2012, we are in the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus to visit a series of frescoed churches from the 12th to 16th centuries—for, of course, their Anastasis images. There is also one separate icon that is very special for us because it was the image that first drew us to Cyprus.

David Crumm: Peter Wallace on Getting to Know Jesus Again in Lent

ReadTheSpirit.com

David Crumm

The global trend may be toward secularization in many regions, but certain populations are drawn toward some of the spiritual disciplines, Peter argues.

Bishop Ken Carter: “As Much Unity as Possible”: Reflections on 1 Corinthians 12

Bishop Kenneth Carter (UMC)

The apostle Paul is writing to a divided church. There were divisions in the church, even in the first century. In this instance, the divisions were about the gifts of speaking in tongues (glossalia) and prophecy (prophetea). Some saw themselves as being more spiritual than others. Paul speaks into the context of the church in Corinth by using the framework of God’s gifts and grace.

The Rev. Emily Heath (UCC)
