Saturday of 4th Sunday in Trinity – Luke 9:28-45

ShareLuke 9:28-45 My all-time favorite opening sentence from a work of fiction (even better than “Call me Ishmael.”) has to be the first line from Franz Kafka’s The Metamorphosis.  It goes like this: “As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect.” Kafka proceeds, […]

There are many ways in which He has revealed Himself to us, and all of these are important.  Sometimes I think the dominant way contemporary Christians see Jesus is as a good friend.  He’s kinda just one of the guys, though definitely the leader of the pack.  We can […]

Thursday of Trinity 9 – Romans 3:1-20

ShareRomans 3:1-20 This is a truly sobering passage of Scripture.
