God in the Cloud by by the Rev. Dr. Donald J. Clark, executive director, Houchen Community Center, El Paso, Texas
03/20/2011 A cloud seems to sit over the barrio. It is just there, a cloud of poverty, a cloud of domestic violence, a cloud of drug and alcohol abuse, a cloud of illiteracy, a cloud of hunger—blotting out any reason for hope for generations.
God's Plan by by Linda J. DuRant, president, South Carolina Conference United Methodist Women
03/19/2011 Faith in God and God's vision is easy to talk about, but it is more difficult to just turn loose and know that wherever God leads us is where we need to go and to be.

A Makeover in the Making by the Rev. Diane Moseley
03/17/2011 When we live an honest Lent and allow ourselves to walk that hot dusty August road that exists in every heart, may we too be able to acknowledge the "dead ground," the "moonscapes" of our lives. May we be honest enough to find God's Easter joy of "exuberance and laughter, thankful voices and melodic songs."

03/16/2011 When we consider those who nurtured us then we can ask how can we as individuals and as Christian communities respond with love to the least, the last and the lost so that we are not a stumbling block for others.

Called Awake and Fed by Lily Bloom Domingo, Susannah Wesley Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
03/14/2011 We recognize what it means to be on a long journey facing loneliness and despair. In the face of every "newcomer" is the reflection of ourselves. Each of us can be the living embodiment of God's love and provide the compassion and care that will sustain our brothers and sisters in their long journey.
Mission Agency in Prayer for Japan, Mission Personnel and Volunteers Safe by Elliott Wright, Global Ministries

Overcoming Temptation by Richard Gibson
03/13/2011 The Temptation of Christ in the desert is a well-known lesson in the Christian faith. Although the story took place more than 2,000 years ago, all of us, and especially our youth, face Satan's temptations daily.
