The first installment from photojournalist Katie Woodward Archibald in our “Holy Space” series (Tuesdays and Thursdays) comes from Mt. Sinai…

As I began my 3,000-stair descent down Mount Sinai I was a bit uneasy.  No one else could be found on my route and I wondered if I were suddenly lost amidst the handful of shriveled shrubs, massive boulders, and sands far beyond counting which covered the Egyptian peninsula.  I could not be too lost though, right?  I was on Mount Sinai; God was surely here at least, I hoped…

For more reflections on this moment, stop by Katie’s blog. Got a holy space to share with us from your life? Send it to me at kristinarobbdover@gmail.com and I’ll republish it at the end of the week.

Isaiah asks how long God's people will

Advent Resurrection
It may seem strange to pair Advent with resurrection. Usually resurrection comes more naturally at Easter. But at heart the labor pangs of all creation giving birth to the Christ child are a longing for a new start. Advent is a longing to be born again. Neuroscience now teaches that every minu
