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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"Men cannot commit a sin so great as to exhaust the infinite love of God....Believe that God loves you as you cannot conceive; that He loves you with your sin, in your sin....All things are atoned for, all things are saved by love. If I, a sinner, even as you are, am tender with you and have pity on you, how much more will God!"

- Fyodor Dostoevsky, from The Brothers Karamazov (Book 1, Ch. 3)

(Painting: "Portrait of the Writer Fyodor Dostoevsky," by Vasily Perov, 1872, oil on canvas)
