Tuesday, (Psalm 96)
MorningInvitatory Psalm 84How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!My soul longs, indeed it faints for the courts of the Lord;my heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

Happy are those who live in your house, ever

- Sunday's Child >> We Will Call on Your Name, a Reflection on Psalm 80:17-19
Sat, 21 Dec 2013 07:00:00 -0600
I've been looking at these verses for a while this morning. I'm thinking about them as prayers by a people who had seen disaster, and in their distress, pled with God for help. I've considered what the compilers of the lectionary intended by using this psalm as a response to this week's reading from Isaiah. A child is promised, and, before that child grows up, the enemy will be defeated.
And, I'm reading these verses considering their message to a Christian in the fourth week of Advent. We are
- Forgotten Voices >> Advent Stories: Child of God
Sat, 21 Dec 2013 06:00:31 -0600
Pictures say a lot. Some say “a thousand words.” Sometimes we like to write many superfluous words when a picture would suffice. I wonder how the time around Jesus’ birth would have been told in pictures. How stark would the …

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 11:31:05 -0600
That is to say, of the weather variety.
We left Kitchener today, expecting to run into weather. It was raining when the day started and the temperatures were hovering around freezing, and we were concerned about traffic conditions on the way. Staying, however, wasn’t an option because, as difficult as the traffic could have been today, Sunday promised a full-on ice storm, with power outages and significant traffic disruption.
So, with some trepidation, we headed out onto the

- Sunday's Child >> When in Distress, a Reflection on Psalm 80:4-7
Fri, 20 Dec 2013 07:00:00 -0600
"O Lord God, how long will you be angry?" this psalm asks. This lament is rather frank--the people are unhappy, their neighbors have scorn for them, their enemies are laughing at them.
They admit their despair, not pretending that things are all right. But they don't accept it as permanent. They continue to pray:
Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved.

The church is to up the ante by going beyond love for the members and loving those who are enemies (Matthew 5:43-44). We are to be identified by our love for those both inside and outside the membership ranks.

What I mean by Moderate Christian Theology
By "moderate Christian theology" I mean the doctrinal views of those who are moderate, relaxed, and open in how they deal with the world, but who take the Christian religion and Christian spirituality seriously. They will have an interest in the Bible, but will not be dogmatic and will also be interested in interfaith dialog and will not pressure their neighbors. Their primary form of witness is by their life, but they do not hide the fact that they are Christians. They let their light shine through deeds first, then words, and even through signs.
