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

"To struggle, yes, to continue to fight, to inflict blows and receive setbacks is in your power [when engaged in spiritual combat against your sins]. To uproot, however, belongs to God alone. If you could have done it on your own, what would have been the need for the coming of the Lord?"

- Pseudo-Macarius, 4th-century monastic writer, from his Fifty Spiritual Homilies (3:4)
