A Subtle Refusal

By: Josh Waidley

There is nothing more natural than coveting. In some ways it is our most primal nature. The accumulation of things to benefit oneself at the expense of another is the essence of the survival of the fittest. In nature it is often bloody and brutal, your life for my dinner. In humanity and in my […]

Choosing Thankful Courage

By: Julie Barrios

Sloths are the cuddly, tree hugging, slow moving, dopey faced animal that took the world by storm when Kristen Bell cried with excitement at the thought of being with one. It hardly needs mentioning that it is quite rare for a human sluggard to elicit such a response. We tend to reserve the description “sloth” […]

Ordering Our Loves

By: Jessica Gracewski

Growing up, lust was a confusing topic. In my church upbringing, lust was defined as what you could and could not do with your significant other. It meant the avoidance of feelings associated with sexual desire and led to behavior modification plans, rules, and absolutely no two-piece bathing suits at summer camp! Further into adulthood, […]

An Inordinate Quest

By: Julie Barrios and Brooke Meyer

Though Solomon was a king, many of us here in SF find ourselves not much different in our access to delicacies. One of the running jokes with our group of friends is that we eat our way through the city. We live in a fairly healthy and fit city but just because we tend to eat […]

The Isolation Of Pride

By: Brian Kim

I suppose you could call me a dreamer, a bit of an idealist. From childhood, the Gospel story of laying one’s life down for another resonated deeply with me. I spent countless hours creating different versions of the same scenario in which I’d give my life for someone else. In my fantasies, I would revel […]

Robbed of Joy

By: Brooke Meyer

Have you ever noticed how just one person’s angry outburst can freeze an entire room? This feeling was all too familiar growing up as I observed then emulated the expressions of my family. I remember one moment in particular where I inserted myself into a yelling match at home and threw my phone aggressively to […]

Envy From Head To Toe

By: Natalie Mendes

I remember them clearly: the popular girls. Head to toe in their pearly white Jack Purcells, Abercrombie jeans, and radiant, clear skin, they were the very picture of prepubescent perfection. Looking down at my worn in and scuffed up Vans, catching a glimpse of my pimply complexion, I felt about as uncool as I could […]

A Journey Through Forgiveness

By: Brooke Meyer

As followers of Christ, we are required to forgive others. But granting forgiveness can be terribly difficult. It is through forgiveness that we fully surrender ourselves and the situation to God and forfeit the right to hold onto our own feelings of betrayal against the person who wronged us. We make the decision to trust […]
