Filled with Less: Living the Christian Life with Simplicity and Intention

At the end of 2018, I was working for Integrative Nutrition Health Coach Cynthia Damaskos of Holistic Christian Life. I had just begun a whole-house decluttering project that was raising me up from out of a rut of despondency. In our conversations, we spoke often about the link between physical clutter and mental, emotional, and spiritual clutter. I was amazed by how one small positive decision (to clean out my closet) had…

Unveiling Morwenna: How a Twenty-First-Century Researcher Fell in Love with a Fifth-Century Saint

When Seven Holy Women was just a gleam in the eye of Khouria Melinda Johnson, she gathered around her a group of seven not-especially-holy women and started doling out saints.

The middle season of life marks itself in our experiences as an ending and a beginning. It is a season of change and realization and can be a time of great joy and great suffering. There are many questions to ask as we seek to reinvent ourselves, to stay connected with grown children, to care for aging parents, and to think practically about the end of natural life. We invite you to…

Book Review – The Age of Paradise: Christendom from Pentecost to the First Millennium

As Strickland argues, those believers of the first millennium lived with a confidence and hope, truly making that an age of paradisiacal belief. United as they were in their beliefs, despite wars and political intrigue over what was once the Roman world, one could still at that time speak of Christendom as a single common society.
