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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"Not to defend the oppressed and shield them from injustice is as great a crime as to desert our parents, friends, or country."

- Marcus Tullius Cicero (known as "Tully" to those intimately acquainted with his work, and simply "Cicero" to the rest of us), a 1st-century BC Roman statesman, writer, and self-styled philosopher, from his book On Moral Duties (1:7) 

(Painting: "Cicero Denounces Catiline," by Cesare Maccari, 1889, fresco)
