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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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 struggle, yes, to continue to fight, to inflict blows and receive setbacks is in your power [when engaged in spiritual combat against your sins]. To uproot, however, belongs to God alone. If you could have done it on your own, what would have been the need for the coming of the Lord?"

- Pseudo-Macarius, 4th-century monastic writer, from his Fifty Spiritual Homilies (3:4)
