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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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

"Anyone who thinks he has understood the divine Scriptures or any part of them, but cannot by his understanding build up this love of God and neighbor, has not yet succeeded in understanding them."

- Augustine, from On Christian Teaching 

(Painting: Detail from Sandro Botticelli's "Madonna of the Magnificat," c.1485)
