We’ll update this list as we discover new inspiration.

Read and reflect. Be renewed. Wonder. Learn. Grow. Share.



MONDAY: Diana Butler Bass’s conversation with NT scholar Elizabeth “Libby” Schrader offers such powerful new insights that Butler Bass even writes, “She offered perspective on biblical interpretation that I don’t think I’ve ever heard before.”

It’s not just for preachers. But if you’re preaching, tackle John 11 with Schrader’s research in mind!!

TUESDAY: From Church Anew’s Lent in a Box series, Rev. Dave Adams invites us to wonder: Where Is God? in our suffering, confusion, frustration, and pain – and in the world’s.

Please join our Teen Mental Health and Church Culture conversation with Melissa Weinhandl, LMFT, TODAY: March 14; 2:00 PM CT. Registration is free. Learn more here.

THURSDAY: On Becoming Christian by Rev.Cameron Trimble

A reflection on congregations becoming, as Brian McLaren says, ‘schools of love’ – with a handy wheel to help us gauge where and when and how we shift out of balance – and how to work back toward it.


Rev. Dr. Charlene Rachel Cox created a series of Vocare spiritual practices as part of the Nourishing Vocation Project of the Lutheran Center at St Olaf College.

‘Vocare is an ongoing spiritual practice designed to help you discern and embrace your various callings so that you can more intentional live life on purpose for the common good.’
