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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"It was necessary for us that God should take flesh and die so that we might have new life....Nothing can equal the miracle of my salvation; a few drops of blood redeem the whole universe!"

- Gregory of Nazianzus, also known as "Gregory the Theologian," a 4th-century church father and patriarch of Constantinople, one of the most important figures in the whole history of Christianity

(Painting: Detail from "La Descente de Croix," by a Stauffenberg master, 14th cent.)
