Thought: All “Christian" political figures should recite Matthew 25:31-46 before making any political statement or pronouncement. — If what you are about to say cannot hold up under the actual & present reigning kingship of Jesus Christ, you should not be saying it.
Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Twenty-Fifth Sunday After Trinity
Anyone know of a KJV edition with modern(ish) commentary noting translation issues and language changes?
Idea: Skill that prevents Alexa from playing Christmas music before Christmas until you’ve prayed the general confession, two Our Fathers, and the Magnificat.
So, if all the seculars are going to start “Christmas” early, the only antidote is me starting Advent a little early, too. My Advent playlist is officially on and my soul is now at rest waiting for my savior’s return to judge the Earth.
I’m a little bummed about the 16gb RAM ceiling, but – baring bad reviews – I think I’m getting a Mac mini & building a lower-cost gaming PC. Should be a better compromise than my 2013 iMac w/ BootCamp has been.
Woot! Sounds like I’m getting a Mac min!
My hopes for today are an ARM Mac mini-tower. I’d settle for an ARM Mac mini with user-serviceable memory and hard disk.
Leute, Leute, Leute! This is not a drill. Sie haben Augustiner-Bräu bei Woodland Wine Merchant! 🍺
Y’all, this really shouldn’t be news, but dehydration is a thing. I’ve started drinking at least 96oz of water a day since Monday and the results are remarkable. Drink more water!
Being engaged in the secular political is important. At the same time I am very happy that God sits on the throne and that Jesus will return. Come Lord Jesus, come.
Cool, cool. The perfect Logos 9 package for me will only cost about ~$4k. 🤦♂️ — This, my friends, is why I stick to dead trees from used book stores for my library.
The virus has made this difficult, but you can be assured, the second Virginia’s godmother, grandparents, and church family can all safely come together, she will be baptized. — Why do Anglicans Baptize Babies?
…”Let the children come to me [Jesus], and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14 (RSV)
Whoever receives one such child in my [Jesus] name receives me; but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
Matthew 18:5 (RSV)
I’m guest preaching, so you know I have to quote a Mississippi Mass Choir song. youtu.be/0yliLqLdX…
The DNC had months to make their case, but — for me at least — they failed. If I can figure out how to write-in a candidate, I’m voting American Solidarity next week.
Woke police! Have y’all heard of this cat Isaiah? He’s saying some pretty crazy things about “so-called” worker opression. I think he’s Marxist. Needs to be looked in to!
This hobbit is very happy about the iPhone mini!
The partisan divide here is interesting. I find myself following the COVID practices of the left, while intellectually more right-leaning. Truth be told, even understanding risk intellectually, I can’t make a Christian ethical argument for setting COVID precautions aside.
Actual conversation that just happened in my house:
R: “Hey, Oliver, you wanna run around in circles?”
They proceed to run around in circles screaming.
Bringing my first non-Mormon Bible with me on my first official service as a deacon. Thanks be to God!
My first public reading of the Gospel as a deacon involves a lot of people getting killed, so that fun.
“O Lord, I have heard the report of thee, and thy work, O Lord, do I fear. In the midst of the years renew it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy.” Habakkuk 3:2 (RSV)
“O Lord, guide those who govern us; And lead us in the way of justice and truth.”
Anglicans pray daily for our leaders, friend or foe. We are not to celebrate the sickness of anyone. Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
