A Quiet Transformation

by Elizabeth McBride When my kids were babies we lived in Washington, D.C. My husband took our car to work each day, so the kids and I did a lot of walking in our neighborhood. On our walks I would frequently pass by a church in our neighborhood with a sign out front that said: “God is still speaking. Are you listening?” The sign always prompted me to pause and listen for God. For about two seconds…until my daughter dropped her favorite stuffed animal on the sidewalk or my son’s... Read More

Drive-Thru Prayer

  "How do we become a love letter to Austin?" That question had been sitting with Joe Skraba. As Covenant pastors preached and discussed spreading God’s love to our city, Joe pondered: How can we utilize our campus as an outreach to the neighborhood and the entire community? His wife, Holly, felt the same. “We have this great location, and it was bugging us to figure out what we could do.” Joe's inspiration manifested as a fusion between this desire to serve Austin and two...

I See Color

Covenant member Alyson Wagnor attended a Covenant Lab. She wrote the following article, reflecting on the class and her background.  At the introductory session of Jon Wasson’s Covenant Lab, Creating the Beloved Community: A Christian Response to Racism, Jon asked each of us to think about our first experience with race.

Prayer and Work: An Integrated Relationship

Tish Harrison Warren was at Covenant Wednesday, Oct.5, as part of our Faith and Lecture Series. Warren, a priest in the Anglican Church in North America who serves at Resurrection South Austin, talked about vocation as our mission. She said that after the Reformation, the “earthy notion of vocation,” more than the scholastic wrangling of justice, captured the imagination of Europe and the hearts of lay people. “It was a new concept that a farmer could teach the story of God in the field...

Need a Lift?

Here’s how God changed my life this year. It’s almost like He had it all planned… We all have our “church friends,” right? They are the people we look for across the patio and rush to catch for a few minutes of laughter before everyone disperses on Sunday mornings. Maybe they are the people we bump into at dinner and introduce to others as our “friends from church.” Have you ever wondered how to transform your church friends into real-life... Read More
