The Cry Vol 17 No 2 . 2

Can’t exhale if I don’t inhale By Cara Strauss Contreras It was getting married that wrecked my fragile ignorance. In general I had obeyed God without much resistance.  Following God’s call to Bolivia. Trying to shape my life into sincere ministry among the poor. Obeying the hard command to stay with people in their pain […]

Apprenticing Obedience Esdrianne Cohen Something happened to me on the day of the children’s party (for children whose mothers participate in Projeto Ester). That day I had to run some errands and took a bus to arrive at the project.  When I signaled for my stop and stepped off the bus, I fell and hit […]

Being that I’m always interested in the “why” of things, I stopped to think. I’m North American … North […]

Smile Upon Me By Hilary These are someone else’s words. This is someone else’s song. I am not sure if Remedy Drive was thinking intimacy when writing these lyrics or if the reader will think intimacy when reading them. Neither of those things really matter though, because when I sing this song it is my […]

The Cry Vol 17 No 1 . 8

Beauty for Ashes I woke on Ash Wednesday not to the peaceful silence of the morning, but to the piercing drone of a fire alarm. Disoriented, I frantically ran around the house attempting to figure out exactly what was happening while my roommate dialed 911. The smoke I had inhaled during my sleep caught up […]
