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new content as usual, and the Thursday and Friday slots will offer devotional and theological reflections (heretofore unpublished) from my seminary years.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



For this day’s sins, O God, grant us mercy:
For sloth that wasted the hours
Or for haste which outran its benedictions;
For fear that frustrated bold hopes
Or dullness that took everything for granted;
For anger that burst forth destructively
Or indifference that smothered the soul;
For suspicion wrongly held
Or for trust cheaply betrayed;
For indecision which avoided the evil
Or for compromise which disguised it.

- Samuel Miller
