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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.

Saturday Synaxis

Lord God Almighty,
I pray for your great mercy by the token of the Holy Cross,
Guide me to your will, to my soul’s need, better than I can myself;
And shield me against my foes, seen and unseen,
And teach me to do your will,
That I may inwardly love you before all things.
For you are my maker and my redeemer,
My help, my comfort, my trust, and my hope.
Praise and glory be to you, now, ever and ever, world without end.  

                      - King Alfred the Great
