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  

The difficulty the author, Rev. W. Benjamin Boswell, experienced trying to lead his congregation to work for racial justice in their community convinced him that there needs to be a new conversation about race and racism that helps members of White-dominant churches and institutions identify their own racial history and wrestle with what it means to be White. That conversation developed into Confronting Whiteness...

From Dry Bones to Living Hope

Embracing God’s Faithfulness in Late Life  
Missy Buchanan
Though the shadow side of aging is a reality, author Missy Buchanan brings spiritual light and nourishment to people in the later years of life. Older adults struggle with chronic pain and diminished physical abilities.

In a culture that values youth more than age, older adults oft...

Light of Setting Suns

Reflecting on Realities and Mysteries at Ninety Years of Life  
Richard L. Morgan
At age 60 Dr. Richard Morgan wrote No Wrinkles on the Soul as he faced the unknowns of aging and felt the need for a book to help himself and others navigate its challenges, especially the spiritual ones. Now 91, Morgan still faces many unknowns, and once again has written a book that describes how it feels to be old and encourages others in the same stage of life. "The years have taken a toll on my body," he writes, "but my mind and spirit are still young!" Light of Setting Suns contains sto...
