United We Stand: Restoring the Unity We Had Days After 9/11

By Justina Miller on Sep 11, 2016 7:00:00 AM

Each September 11th, we remember the atrocities that are so painful to resurrect in our mind's eye. We think of parents who didn’t take the train home, kids who will always remember their firefighting dads as heroes, so many last “I love you’s,” and even more that are still said but only heard by ears in heaven.

Then there’s the famous phrase that made it onto a postage stamp: “United We Stand.”

Cancer’s Silver Lining: Compassion and Community

By Justina Miller on May 18, 2016 1:00:00 PM

The inspiring film, “Until Forever” challenges a common perception that a story about cancer and death will inevitably be a somber one. Instead, this Christian movie about Michael Boyum’s battle with leukemia is brimming with joy and charm. While Michael Boyum’s great faith and sense of humor shape the film’s optimism, the film also illustrates an often unacknowledged element of suffering: that suffering has the power to inspire compassion and unite a community.
