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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"The reason for loving God is God himself... When someone asks, 'Why should I love God?' he may mean, 'What is lovely in God?' or 'What shall I gain by loving God?' In either case, the same sufficient cause of love exists, namely, God himself."

- Bernard of Clairvaux, 12th-century French theologian and monastic reformer
