Labor Day and the Dignity of Work

Yesterday was Labor Day in the US, a day taken to rest and reflect on the dignity of work and the human worker in our culture. ​ I love thinking about the dignity of work – the goodness of this invitation to partake in God's creative action as members of the...

Delighting in the Still, Small Voice

It’s Time to Design Your Summer
