Leading readers toward Jesus, Hart offers concrete practices for churches that seek solidarity with the oppressed and are committed to racial justice.More info →
There is no such thing as a naked spirituality. Our spirituality is always shaped by the clothes of our experience. The quest of Spirituality with Clothes On is to acknowledge that we do wear clothes; and, by examining them, we begin to understand ourselves and accept others who are wearing different outfits. We are what we wear: we cannot separate ourselves from our gender, personality, developmental stage, family, historical background, culture, or the difficult experiences of our lives. We need to acknowledge all these things, reflect on them—and sometimes even embrace them—in order to truly become ourselves.More info →

Why do people, even Christians, sometimes feel empty, estranged, cynical?
Usually with good reason. Many of us are weary of pat answers that the church and religion have offered. We sense there’s more.
We ponder, how can we be fiercely honest with ourselves and our deepest soul questions without losing our personal faith? How can we know God more fully now and satisfy this holy longing that we experience? What does it mean to be a true servant walking closely with an immortal God?More info →
