Getting Older Involves a Lot of Dying

This post reflects not just on the physical aspect of death, but many other ways that we experience an increase of dying as we age. Yet there are benefits to this! A worthy reflection.

Is Domesticity a Bad Word?

This recommendation comes by way of a respected female member of our congregation who found it beneficial. I’ll only add that men have a place in tending their homes, too.

Is There Really an ‘Orthodox’ View on Sexuality?

“One of the biggest debates facing evangelicalism today is not the nature of marriage and sexuality, but whether or not different views of marriage and sexuality constitute an issue on which orthodox Christians can simply “agree to disagree … Does orthodoxy require a certain stance?”

ABOUT — The Sunday Reader shares articles we've found particularly insightful, thought-provoking, or edifying this week. While not always representing the views of our Pastors and Elders, these selections offer a mix of viewpoints to broaden and frame your understanding of God, Scripture, ourselves, and the world we serve in Christ's name.
