During this time of anxiety and isolation The Upper Room wants to make it as easy as possible for people to find resources to support spiritual health. These past issues of Alive Now and Weavings magazines are available to read online at no cost. Peace be with you.
Doubt (Alive Now, March/April, 2016)
This theme of this issue of Alive Now (The Upper Room, 2016) is "Doubt." Editor Beth A. Richardson shares, "I find doubt creeping in during times like this. What’s happened to the human race? Are we still God’s creations, or are we passing the point of redemption? Where is God in all of this? Sometimes it’s hard to trust that God is still here."
Do Not Be Anxious About Tomorrow (Weavings XXV, 4)
This issue of Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life (The Upper Room, 2010) examines the impact of anxiety on our lives and the spiritual disciplines that help us live with it creatively.
Living in the Present (Alive Now, Jan/Feb, 2011)
This theme of this issue of Alive Now (The Upper Room, 2011) is "Living in the Present." Editor Beth A. Richardson explains "Jesus calls us to live in today – breathing in and breathing out, eating today’s bread, reaching out to touch the hand and heart of the person right next to us, open to God’s spirit moving in us as we become Christ’s presence in the world."
Why Are You Afraid? (Weavings XXVII, 3)
This issue of Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life (The Upper Room, 2012) helps us name the fears that loom large and small in our daily experiences, and then point us to spiritual resources and disciplines from Christian tradition that can sustain us in faith when we are afraid.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
