Travels with Cathie
By: Dorothy Irvin | July 31, 2011
What a joy it was to be around Cathie! We met seldom, and it was always too short. She had so much information and so many new ideas and insights to share that there was never enough time to do all the discussing we wanted to do. And, underneath the intellectual excitement of learning more [...]

The Mother
By: H. Edgar Hix | July 30, 2011

Book Review: Submission within the Godhead and the Church in the Epistle to the Philippians
By: Alan G. Padgett | July 31, 2011

By: Margaret English de Alminana | July 31, 2011
Marnie Ferree presents a deeply moving and sometimes disturbing investigation of sexual abuse from the perspective of the injured, as one who was deeply wounded through sexual victimization, and the healer, as an actively working counselor and minister to those who have experienced similar abuse.
