Best decision ever #1: submitting to Jesus as my Savior and Lord.

Best decision ever #2: on this night 39 years ago, marrying Libby – the most incredible wife I could ever have!

#2 flows out of God's faithfulness based in #1!!

Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ!

A Great Blog

One reason I do not blog more is the prevalence of great blogs which already say (often better than I could express it) many of the things I think about. I have Fr. Dwight Longenecker's blog in my side panel (Standing On My Head); I try to stay in touch with most things he writes. One recent entry can be found here, and I commend it quite whole-heartedly.

The Divide of Understanding

The issue of homosexuality is proving to be a watershed which divides orthodox Christianity from a falsehood whose full consequences are known only to God. The "world" (and those who buy into the thinking of the Spirit of the Age) can produce any number of reasons why there needs to be openness and even support for those who choose to practice this disorder. There is a reason, though, for heeding the consistent witness of the Church. This article in Christianity Today makes the case simply and clearly. There is a right way to understand the Great Tradition and the authority it holds for those who follow the Jesus presented to us by the Apostolic Witness of the New Testament.

Do you ever wonder....

What would happen if all who claim to be Christians in this country were as passionate about Jesus as many are about politics, patriotism or even pennies at the pump?

Now and Then

Great words from Fr. Hans Urs von Balthalsar about Jesus meeting us where we are, yet moving us to the fullness of salvation....

....Christ became both things [the way and the goal] for us simultaneously. For his vitality consists in this: that he always stands at the level of the person he is educating and yet always is to be found as well at [as!] the final goal of his education. He walks along with the disciples toward Emmaus; but as they walk they discover that he is already reposing in the assurance of the goal. He is the Way, yet also the Truth, and, for that very reason, the Life.

In this Easter season we follow the One who both died for us and rose from the dead. He is with us even as He goes ahead of us. Hallelujah! What a Savior!
