Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Photo of the Week

O love of God, how strong and true; eternal, and yet ever new;
Uncomprehended and unbought, beyond all knowledge and all thought!
O wide-embracing, wondrous love, we read thee in the sky above;
We read thee in the earth below, in seas that swell and streams that flow.
We read thee in the flowers, the trees, the freshness of the fragrant breeze,
The songs of birds upon the wing, the joy of summer and of spring.
O love of God, our shield and stay through all the perils of our way,
Eternal love, in thee we rest, forever safe, forever blessed.

- verses 1, 2, 3 & 6 of the hymn "O Love of God, How Strong and True," by Horatius Bonar
