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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"God is our highest good. Enjoyment of God is the only happiness that will satisfy our souls. To fully enjoy God is infinitely better than the most pleasant accommodations here...[which] are but shadows. The enjoyment of God is the substance. The others are but scattered beams; God is the sun. The others are but streams; God is the fountain. The others are but drops; God is the ocean."

- Jonathan Edwards, 18th-century American pastor and theologian

(Painting: "Algerian Flower," by Lilias Trotter, 1853-1928)
