A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.

Saturday Synaxis

(Painting: "The Holy Trinity," by El Greco, 1577) 

We yield thee thanks, we yield thee exceeding thanks, O Lord our God, us touching all things, and for all things, through all things, and in all things; for that thou hast sheltered us, succored us, kept us, and brought us to this hour. If we have at all sinned against thee, in thought or word or deed, do thou, O Lover of men, vouchsafe to overlook it; and forsake not us, O God, who put our trust in thee, nor lead us into temptation; but deliver us from the evil one, and from his works, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
