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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

(Painting: "The Crucifixion," by Giotto, c.1325)

 O God, we belong to You utterly.
You are such a Father
that You take our sins from us
and throw them behind Your back.
You clean our souls,
as Your Son washed our feet.
We hold up our hearts to You:
make them what they must be.

          - George MacDonald, 19th-century Scottish pastor and writer
