Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Saturday Synaxis

You are never weary, O Lord, of doing us good. Let us never be weary of serving you. But as you have pleasure in the prosperity of your servants, so let us take pleasure in the service of our Lord, and abound in your work, and in your love and praise evermore. O fill up all that is wanting, reform whatever is amiss in us, perfect what concerns us, let the witness of our pardoning love ever abide in all our hearts. 
                      - John Wesley
