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

"In order to be perfectly what God wants us to be we must be truly ourselves. But in order to be truly ourselves we must find ourselves in Christ--which can only be done if we lose ourselves in Him. This is our great vocation."

- Thomas Merton, 20th century Trappist monk, from his book Seeds of Contemplation

(Painting: "Triptych with Crucifixion," by Jacob Cornelisz van Oostanen, c.1510)
