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.

Quote of the Week

"Remember from now on whenever something tends to make you unhappy, draw on this principle: 'This is no misfortune; but bearing with it bravely is a blessing.'"

- Roman Stoic philosopher Epictetus (2nd cent. AD), Fragment 28b, quoted in Marcus Aurelius' Meditations (4.49.6)

(Painting: "Portrait of a Philosopher," by Salvator Rosa, 17th cent.)
