Welcome to the Memorial Day 2018 Edition of Publishous NOW!

You may notice some differences between this issue and the others, because this is also the Terrible wifi edition. We are downsizing our offices and had to rely on our iPhone hotspots for this issue. You may notice differences in the future as our editors will be backpacking through Europe and will have to find Internet connections along the way.

Some Life Lessons of a Fugitive on the Run

Meditations on Psalm 7 When you are being hunted by the law, there is no safe place. You always need to be on your guard. There is no one who you can ultimately trust. Even your closest comrades may sell you out if the price is right. Have you ever felt like that? I...

What Church Can Be

Another quiet night’s sleep was shattered… …by the midnight alarm. The claxon went off in the small, New England lighthouse on the rocky Massachusetts coast. Another ship had run aground in the night fog on the rocks. The men and women in the small, dingy lighthouse...

Cling to the Truth | A poem about trust

When your day ahead is foggy and your way is less than clear. When you know in your heart you’re not alone, but it feels like no one’s there. Just cling to the truth with all your might. For we walk by faith and not by sight. And then just rest, in what is true. For...

When you Suffer, Where Do you Turn?

Meditations on Psalm 6. David cries out to the Lord! What is his trouble? We do not find out until the very end of this song. It is people who are against him that bring him such emotional turmoil. (verses 7–9) His world is literally in chaos. He lacks close intimacy...

2 Practical Ways to Put God on the Throne of Your Life

You Deserve to Exist by Birthright

Attention. We all seek it, always in one way or another. Even those that deny it. Attention gives us a sense of belonging. Recognition from others will validate our reason for existing. How sad is that? How sad is it that many walk around on this planet thinking they...
