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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

[From a discussion of forgiving other who have wronged us:] 

"When you set out to appear before the Lord, let the garment of your soul be woven throughout with the thread of wrongs no longer remembered."

- John Climacus, The Ladder of Divine Ascent

(Painting: "The Reconciliation of Jacob and Esau," by Peter Paul Rubens, c.1625, oil on canvas)
