Fairfax Fair: Choosing to Be Captive or Free

The Rev. Dr. Fairfax Fair (PCUSA)

God’s forgiveness is freely offered us, Jesus' parable in Matthew 18 tells us, but Dr. Fairfax Fair says gratitude is a learned trait that requires us to get outside ourselves.

Amos Disasa: The Water Will Hold You

The Rev. Amos Disasa (PCUSA)

Like the disciples in their storm-tossed boat, we often experience moments in life when the thunder rolls and the lightning strikes. The Rev. Amos Disasa notes that there were at least four fishermen on this boat, but none of them seem to know what to do when the storm hits. Some storms just can’t be calmed without Jesus. And Jesus is always in the boat with us.

The Rev. Susan Crowell (ELCA)

Rob Lee: Nevertheless, She Persisted

The Rev. Robert Lee (UCC)
