Christmas

[ One of Jessica’s best from 2013] Well, Neo and I are both, in our ways, in the bosom of our families, and we both hope that you are too – but perhaps like us, you are just looking at that Reader in the intervals of good cheer and fellowship. We are all, of course, […]

Easter: Past and Present

I sit here now, in the dark of an early Nebraska Saturday morn, and look back over the week we call Easter week and think it truly named. That’s because a week ago, I was watching a friend of mine founder in a situation, not of their making, which was coming very close to stealing […]

He is Risen

That’s the importance of the day. Jesus the Christ is risen from the dead. A few words on some of the symbolism, The term Easter comes from the old Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring, although the only real mention is from the Venerable Bede. The egg being proscribed during Lent was offered in abundance at Easter […]

‘This doubtful day of feast or fast’

Something unusual today for Good Friday. It falls on Lady Day, the Feast of the Annunciation, something that won’t happen again until 2157. Our forefathers in the faith considered it to be the true date of the Crucifixion. A Clerk of Oxford tells us: This day was not only a conjunction of man-made calendars but also […]

Beauty Not Often Seen

It’s true, if the death and resurrection of our Lord did not happen then, we should receive pity. But we know it happened. Look around; there is too much beauty! The death is a cold, constricting bitterness. But, the resurrection is a warm, expanding sweetness.

The post Beauty Not Often Seen appeared first on Diane Markins.

Just another member of the patriarchy | The Catechesis of Caroline

I know, it’s Saturday, and usually we try to keep it a little lighter on Saturday. But I read this yesterday, and it haunted me last night. Not least because it reminded me of a similar story that Jess told us, here and here. In that story as well, the baby was killed, and the […]

Hope, and Prayer

As I said in my last post, I do not feel competent to offer solace to the other victims in this scandal: the women who have been cheated, by themselves, and by pressure tactics from having their children. They too pay a heavy price. While I don’t have any personal experience of this, my dearest […]

What If The Crucifixion Never Happened?

  I saw this article this morning and it moved me in several ways. First it is a very good commentary on the whole “For God so loved us that He gave His only begotten Son” theme. He did, and not only did He give us his wisdom and goodness, and gentleness, He allowed the […]

Palm Sunday, Triumphalism, and Leadership

On Palm Sunday, way back in the mid 60’s, according to the traditions of the Evangelical and Reformed Church, I became a man, with all the responsibilities to God that that carried. It was also when you traditionally got your first suit. The Sunday before was Examination Sunday, the test was verbal, in front of […]

A Law of Liberty?

We often speak here of leadership, what it is, how to do it, and such. This is another installment. But we have some underbrush to clear first. We have often noted that Christianity is based almost entirely on ten things you must not do, we call them commandments, and we share them with Judaism. They […]

A Question in the Comments

On Jessica’s post Where is Comfort, the Unit asked Jessica in comments a question. Golly gee Ms. Hof. Thanks for comment. I wonder if you could maybe post here as to a question I still have? One of the last things Momma said to me is “the righteous suffer with the unrighteous.” I spare you (well […]

Is It Reasonable To Criticize Missionary Doctors?

If you are anything approaching a traditional Christian these days, I’d bet that you are feeling, if not exactly persecuted, put upon may be the nicest way to say it. We have a lot of very noisy evangelical atheists around, don’t we? Well, I have a question for them, why aren’t your atheist buddies out […]

Got Grace? “Proof” Says that’s Enough

Martin Luther once commented that humanity after the fall is no longer able to imagine any way to be made right with God other than works. Our tendency by nature is to slip into the delusion that our standing before God somehow depends on what we do.

Sheep, Shepherds, and Wolves

Much has been said this week, some of it here, about ISIS and the Christians of Mosul. It is right for us to weep, and gnash our teeth over the fate that is overtaking our brothers and sisters. Many of us lay much of the blame at the feet of our politicians, I think that […]

Sheila Walsh, The Storm Inside

There are three levels of reality, of truth, that you and I face each day and understanding each one of those will be a game-changer for us. There is the chaos of what we feel and the chaos that the enemy would stir up in us. If we focus on those two a… . . . → Read More: Sheila Walsh, The Storm Inside

The Story of Your Journey

There is a God in Heaven who is desperately longing for a relationship with me. The beautiful part is He loved us first, with no hesitation, and put all His cards on the table. The cross stands as a shameless display to win my affection. Continue readi… . . . → Read More: The Story of Your Journey
