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

On the power of poetry:

"Much is the force of heaven-bred poesy...
For Orpheus' lute was strung with poets' 
           sinews,
Whose golden touch could soften steel and 
           stones,
Make tigers tame, and huge leviathans
Forsake unsounded deeps to dance on sands."

- William Shakespeare, from his play Two Gentlemen of Verona

(Painting: "Allegory of the Poet," by Jacob Jordaens, c. 1660)
