A Hutchmoot Reflection

By Mark Meynell

For a long time in the early years of my Christian walk, I felt quite schizophrenic. I was generously discipled by older believers, which meant that I learned huge amounts and grew rapidly.

By Pete Peterson

In late-November a group of volunteers and Rabbit Room staff filled the rickety living room at North Wind Manor to ship out over 1300 copies of Every Moment Holy, and I thought over and over again how much I loved the sound of laughter and conversation as people enjoyed one another’s company during a day of good work.

Feelings Like Water

By Helena Sorensen

Long ago, in the quiet of our mothers’ wombs, the snow began to fall. Blood and water and food came into our bodies and nourished us. Endorphins washed over us, along with surges of cortisol and adrenaline. An invisible womb of emotion surrounded us, too, an atmosphere of fear or bitterness or rage.
