Great Lectionary Preaching

I’m absolutely enthused over two sermon podcasts I’ve been listening to for several weeks. Both are examples of Anglican/Episcopal Churches that are standing for historic orthodoxy, but also embodying the Gospel in relevant, lively, ground-level Christian communities. I want to recommend these podcasts for all my listeners. Both are simple outstanding, and both are lectionary […]

Dumb Up, Brother: A Spirituality of Ignorance

Somewhere in the backlogs of this web site I recounted what it was like being on staff at a church full of seminary students. Everyone knew so much that we had real difficulty doing anything- like buying stamps- without endless debate. Of course, there were advantages to having a lot of smart people in the […]

What Belongs to All of Us (3)

“What Belongs to All of Us” is exactly what it says. Colossians 1:12 …giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom […]

A Better Writer Gets A Turn

UPDATE II: Ok. Plunge on ahead. UPDATE: A number of memorable comments have appeared today, but none more entertaining than this one. Really, it would be best to stop blogging. It’s the end of the road. Decision time. Carl’s devastating “fisk” has caused an eruption of cognitive dissonance. Deep down, you know the truth, but […]

Isaiah 40:25 To whom then will you compare me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One. 26 Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name, by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong […]

What Belongs to All of Us (1)

These posts will celebrate the Bible’s descriptions of what belongs to ALL Christians. Christian unity cannot be found in continually debating our differences, but in acknowledging what we all possess through union with Jesus Christ. Galatians. 3:23 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be […]

Five Questions on The iMonk and Catholicism (where I also discuss some of my thoughts on how various kinds of Christians should appreciate and love one another.)

UPDATE: Carl Olson fisks this post. Just in case anyone missed it, I’m not trying to talk you people out of your Catholicism or tell you I’m glad I’m not a Catholic. James White’s blog is elsewhere. Comments are closed on this post. Mr. Olson can provide you the space to discuss this one, and […]

Further Thoughts on The Locally Appearing Jesus

Be sure and read the original post first. As always, endless gratitude to Robert Capon. 1. The Biblical worldview is one of sacramental reality. The glory of God and his Son fill the universe. The purpose of creation is sacramental. Matter is fully capable of mediating the glory of God in whatever way God determines. […]
