A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.

Quote of the Week

The only hope, or else despair
          Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre--
          To be redeemed from fire by fire.
          Who then devised the torment? Love.
Love is the unfamiliar Name
Behind the hands that wove
The intolerable shirt of flame 
Which human power cannot remove.
          We only live, only suspire
          Consumed by either fire or fire.

- T. S. Eliot, from "Little Gidding," Four Quartets
