Matthew 15:

Jesus has harsh words for two groups of people.

(1) the Pharisees, and (2) a Gentile woman.

There are (at least) two ways of incorporating the Psalms into the Daily Office.

This month I switched to the one month cycle (printed in the BCP Psalter) from the seven week cycle (printed in the Daily Office Lectionary).

Twelve days in, I love it.

On February 2nd, I was ordained a Deacon in Christ’s One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. It was a full, rich weekend.

Bonus: my wardrobe was just drastically simplified.
