Michele Van Loon sees hope in middle age: “For all of human history, people have been trying to make sense of this existential dark space—the downward arc that comes at the beginning of the end.

Rachael Starke tells the story of Boaz: “Allard sees humanity—especially humanity influenced by patriarchal culture—as “unsafe.” But the Christian worldview disagrees. The problem with Allard’s diagnosis is not that it’s too dark, but that it’s not dark enough. We are, all of us, far worse than merely ‘unsafe.’ We’re capable of sheer evil. But just […]

Andrea Palpant Dilly articulates the beauty of the truth of the gospel: "But we have nothing to apologize for. On the contrary, the orthodox vision of human sexuality is abundantly good, true, and beautiful and points toward health and healing. It’s key to discipleship inside the church.

Dorena Williamson encourages believers to persevere with each other: “As Christ followers, we are commanded to bear one another’s burdens.
