Maybe It Is Like Touching God – Laura Wifler
Have you ever thought about how we cannot touch God who is our greatest comfort but we can touch all these other great things? We can run our hands over our son’s soft cheek, the purple knit blanket made by our great-grandmother-in-law, the ceramic mug our father’s hands made, even as they shook with Parkinson’s. Maybe they are like touching God.

Go to Sleep. Stay Awake. – Cassie Watson
To truly rest, I need to remember that I’m not sovereign. God is on the throne; he’s the only one whose every purpose will come to pass. He’s made me with limitations and blessed me by prescribing the patterns of work and rest. Not work and a little more work and maybe just one more task. But there’s also something deeper going on than just my failure to believe that God is always sovereign. My inability to sleep comes, paradoxically, from my failure to stay awake.
Should Christian Women Watch Redeeming Love? – Phylicia Masonheimer
I read Redeeming Love in college (I think? I can’t actually remember.) and have been thinking of seeing the movie eventually (not in theaters). Phylicia makes some insightful and interesting points over the book + movie. I personally didn’t finish this episode feeling shamed for enjoying the well-written fiction story years ago, or for thoughtfully considering the movie (I have other reasons for not jumping at the movie. Feel free to ask me about them!).
