For a Tongue Like Thunder

April 7, 2015


“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of him everywhere” (2 Corinthians 2.14 ESV).

Stepping Out into Spring

March 24, 2014


Entering North American Anglicanism in leaving the Episcopal Church (TEC) is like stepping out of a dark cellar into the bright daylight of the European spring in 1945.

April 27, 2011


After a great Easter Day of worship and preaching spent the time on Monday and Tuesday this week doing a long list of chores that were neglected since, ahem, since Lent began. My wife lovingly called it “an Easter miracle”. I did have a read of a bit more John Flavel. His complete works are […]
