Note to My Readers: Due to the busyness of my summer schedule, in which I'm serving as a camp pastor on top of my normal duties, I'll be putting my ongoing Thursday and Friday series on hold until mid-August. All other days will continue to feature new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

Quote of the Week: Boethius

"The good always have power and the wicked do not....Only the wise can do what they want to do; the wicked can follow their desires, but they cannot...find among their pleasures the good they are really looking for."

- Boethius, early 6th-century Christian philosopher, author of The Consolation of Philosophy
