In my search for ideal background music for writing, I have not found anything better than this.

Talk amongst yourselves.

Virtue & Social Media. Tonight, 7pm, at Communion Neighborhood Cooperative. Hosted by Coram Deo Academy, all are welcome!

The past three week’s worth of Sunday Collects are among my favorite in this season after Pentecost.

(Propers 21-23)

Excited to talk about “Reframing Christian Education” next week, and even more excited to hear responses from a panel made up of Lay leaders, Clergy, and Theologians.

If you are in Dallas on 10/18, I’d love to see you there.

Finally getting around to watching Won’t You Be My Neighbor has confirmed a growing suspicion of mine:

If I could become like one person from the past half century, I think that one person would be Fred Rogers.

This will take a while to process. Also, I should not have watched it in public.

This 18-minute talk is a fascinating—and moving—vision for our work in this century.

@ayjay, thank you for sharing.
@ahc, thank you for your work.

And I will have mercy on No Mercy,
and I will say to Not My People, ‘You are my people’; and he shall say, ‘You are my God.’”

  • The God of the Old Testament

The Screwtape Letters uses Hell to teach us about virtue; The Great Divorce uses Heaven to teach us about vice.

C.S. Lewis is brilliant.

St. Michael’s Cathedral (Coventry, England) was built in the 14th century and destroyed by German bombers in WWII. Fr. Richard Howard had the words “Father Forgive” inscribed behind the altar of the ruined Cathedral as he led the project to rebuild a new one.

Potent reminder in today’s Gospel reading (Luke 4:1-13): In the temptation of Jesus, Satan also has a “for it is written” line. Jesus and Satan both quote multiple passages of the Old Testament.
