The Godbearing Life, Revised Edition

The Art of Soul Tending for Youth Ministry  
Megan DeWald, Kenda Creasy Dean, Ron Foster
A generation ago, The Godbearing Life charted a new course for youth ministry to fuel the faith both of young people and the adults who minister with them.

My Body Is Good

Giving Up Diet Culture and Embracing Body Positivity for Lent  
Anne Cumings

Author Anne Cumings recalls growing up in a culture that scrutinized her body as a source of weakness and sin. Her church warned of "slippery slides into debauchery," and modern culture taught her that she must look a certain way to be attractive, acceptable, even lovable—something to which most women will relate.

Psalms for Black Lives

Reflections for the Work of Liberation  
Gabby Cudjoe-Wilkes, Andrew Wilkes

In the summer of 2020, while composing a series of devotionals on the Psalms for their church, the Double Love Experience, authors Gabby Cudjoe Wilkes and Andrew Wilkes recognized that these ancient words spoke truth and inspiration not only to their immediate community, but also to the growing number of people doing the holy, demanding work of pursuing justice, undoing structural racism, and building a society that truly values Black lives. The Psalms speak power today as they always have. T...

Confronting Whiteness Participant's Guide

A Spiritual Journey of Reflection, Conversation, and Transformation

That conversation developed into Confronting Whiteness...
