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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"To contemplate the smallest object is to experience the Trinity: the very being of the object takes us back to the Father; the meaning it expresses, its logos, speaks to us of the Logos, [Christ]; its growth to fullness and beauty reveals the Breath, the Life-Giver, [the Holy Spirit]."

- Olivier Clement, 20th-century French Orthodox theologian, paraphrasing the early church father Maximus the Confessor
