Doing things a day early here because tomorrow, we fast!
It’s super interesting what’s still possible on an N64. Amazing what maths and long study can achieve. People are pretty cool. youtu.be/xwls5SpNn…
Moving to a paper calendar and task list has been a game changer for me. I’ve never been this on top of my life and so clear on what needs to be done.
As a child of God, each person is entitled to enjoy the goodness of the Creator’s world, but is also charged with the responsibility to cultivate it to bring forth God’s good gifts. For many poor people, the good intentions of the affluent have robbed them of the privileges that are their birthright and frustrated their attempts to take responsibility in the Father’s good creation.
The challenge, however, is to wed this compassion to action that works. The poor don’t need what they often receive from the affluent: secondhand clothes, free Thanksgiving meals and taxpayer-funded government aid. The poor, whether in the developed or developing world, need opportunity. They need the freedom to address their own poverty in their own context.

I’m “really enjoying this playlist” years old. 🇫🇷 🥖⚜️🍷
So, curious, how many other ministries or parishes are using the 2019 TLE? Am I the only one?
Not a bad list of Bible recommendations. overcast.fm/+RJPMqBsK…
Finished reading: 1 Peter by Wayne A. Grudem 📚
My absolute favorite subject at our homeschool co-op is cooking. I love “reviewing” our children’s work. 👨🍳
There is no greater joy as a priest than seeing God do a powerful work in the life of a parishioner. — God has prepared a feast of joy and happiness for his laborers. It is to our own detriment if we chose to sit in our busyness. In the fields of His harvest there is great joy!

Anyone a member of Forward in Faith NA? I’d love to know more, but on face value this seems like something to join and support. www.fifna.org

PSA: Children are not a burden, but rather a joy. There is more to life than productivity. Enjoy your family. Enjoy your time together. There is more to life than work. 👨👩👧👦 ❄️
The ACNA should have put a hold on WO at our foundation. I fear this is an issue that will further destroy our communion. — For or against, I think we can all agree it was the issue that kicked off the fall of TEC. We should tread lightly.
Jesus. There is no other name.
I wish USPS had a “seriously no rush, stay safe” option. It’s just a Bible I bought with some Christmas money. No rush. It can wait until after the winter storm.
Bible Translation I’d Patron if I become Rich: The King Charles Translation: 1611 Authorized Bible given the IVP BCP 1662 update. 1. Update to follow modern Bible formatting & punctuation. 2. Correct known AV translation issues. 3. Extremely conservative change of words only that have changed meanings since 1611. 4. Footnote system to explain Hebrew/Greek turns of phrase translated word-for-word in AV and to define “archaic” English words/phrases. 5. Undecided, but worth exploring: Switching the Psalms to follow the Cloverdale.
We’ve been saved for a purpose. Remember your baptism and glorify Him who washes us clean in His blood freely given for sinners.
We shall see how it preached tomorrow, but I’m getting myself fired up writing about the baptism of Jesus. We serve a mighty king!
What a mess. — This whole thing could be avoided by standing firm on a Christian sexual ethic, discipling people into the faith, and not looking the other way at sin. I bless people — i.e. sinners — all the time. But never would I bless a gang for what’s good in their collective. Individual members? Yes. Pray God’s grace and mercy to overcome sin and to magnify what is good. Bless the gang? Heck no! — https://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_ddf_doc_20240104_comunicato-fiducia-supplicans_en.html
Finished reading: Lord Sunday by Garth Nix 📚 — I must say. Not the ending I’d expected or would have hoped for. But, at least, after nearly twenty years I know how it all ended.
