On our way! Today at 2 the bishop will ordain me a deacon. Thanks be to God! It’s been a long journey!

“Thus says the Lord of hosts, Render true judgments, show kindness and mercy each to his brother, do not oppress the widow, the fatherless, the sojourner, or the poor; and let none of you devise evil against his brother in your heart.” Zechariah 7:9-10 (RSV)

Woe to her that is rebellious and defiled, the oppressing city! She listens to no voice, she accepts no correction, she does not trust in the Lord, she does not draw near to her God. — Zephaniah 3:1-2 (RSV)

An occasional reminder: I enjoy old(er) computers & handhelds. Very interested if you find an older computer or computer accessories. 🤓🖥️

A Word During Coronatide

“Come, let us return to the Lord; for he has torn, that he may heal us; he has stricken, and he will bind us up. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him. Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord; his going forth is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”

Hosea 6:1-3 ʀꜱᴠ

In this house we believe in the mother of all sciences, theology; the study of the one Holy, true, just, beautiful, and righteous Triune God — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Dear anti-mask people at CostCo, I see you and you look ridiculous with your nose hanging out and your loose masks. 😷

Assistance requested: Is the below an alb or a cassock-alb? Would you wear it over a traditional black cassock? Clergy Alb — I’m a choir dress kind of guy and I’m very confused by all of this.

Anyone else listening to the Excavator Song as a prelude to Church this morning?

Getting an alb for my ordination. 🤢 Why did people start wearing these? Traditional Anglican choir dress is far superior, IMHO.

Hanging out with my newest buddy. She’s pretty great. 💚

Dear protestors,

I agree, the police are too violent, the government doesn’t listen, and the sin of racism sits deep within our society. But… y’all are going to need to lay off desecrating the Holy Mother of God. She’s the prophet you want in times like these.

“My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded : the lowliness of his handmaiden: For behold, from henceforth : all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath magnified me: and holy is his Name. And his mercy is on them that fear him: throughout all generations. He hath shewed strength with his arm: he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seat: and hath exalted the humble and meek. He hath filled the hungry with good things: and the rich he hath sent empty away. He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel : As he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed for ever. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.”

I’m little bit obsessed with this little girl. 💚

Praise God! After a long night of temp checks and attempts to catheterize Virginia for a urine sample, the doctors have decided to release her. Still waiting on paperwork, etc., but I’m praying they’ll be home before lunch.

Results just came back. All negative! God is good! They think Virginia is just small and has trouble regulating her body temp. They are watching her overnight, but will most likely release her in the morning. Thanks for all the prayers!

Virginia has been admitted to Vanderbilt Children’s this morning with a low temperature. Because of COVID, I’m not allowed in. Please pray for her and Jennifer.
