War shapes our lives, sometimes encouraging violence, verbal and physical. Outside war zones, ordinary citizens find ourselves drawn into taking sides. How can we create a better future for our children, ourselves, even for those we don’t know?

Ask an Evangelical: Who or What do Evangelicals Believe God Is?

Who or what do evangelicals believe God is? Is God for them an image of a human man but not a woman? Do evangelicals believe in scientific evolution or do they believe each and every species was individually created?

All Civilian Lives Matter Says Military Ethicist

Directly targeting civilians or exposing them to disproportionate harm in war is wrong for the same reasons that it is wrong to kill or harm innocent people in peacetime. People who pose no threat to others deserve respect and protection from violence regardless of their nationality or group identity.

Reflecting on Goals for the New Year

By Matthew Kincanon

The year is coming to an end and many of us are thinking about what our New Year’s resolutions are going to be. I’ve spent time looking back at what’s happened over the last several months, especially when thinking about what my resolutions and goals should be for the coming year.

Here’s what I hope to accomplish in 2022:  

  1. Find a job where I can fully dedicate myself to causes and stories I care about and reach my full potential. The dream is to work with the Tribes.
  2. Make self-care a higher priority and stay on top of taking care of myself. 
  3. Find more time to enjoy life and fully enjoy the activities I love without worrying about what could be coming up during the week.
  4. Spend more time with my family.
  5. Take care of a few projects that have been in the works for awhile.

What are your goals for the coming year?
