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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"Remember from now on whenever something tends to make you unhappy, draw on this principle: 'This is no misfortune; but bearing with it bravely is a blessing.'"

- Roman Stoic philosopher Epictetus (2nd cent. AD), Fragment 28b, quoted in Marcus Aurelius' Meditations (4.49.6)

(Painting: "Portrait of a Philosopher," by Salvator Rosa, 17th cent.)
