Doubtless…

Because the Lord has written doubtless, take heed that you do not doubt.

CHS, ToD, VII:15

De-humanization…

The moment you deny that man was made as the image of God,
that becomes the moment you begin to de-humanize men and women.

Antitheses…

Love for self, living to self, stands not only in antithesis to the Lord of Glory,
but stands in radical antithesis to what we were made to be.

Matter of faith…

…it is a matter of faith, not to trust unto that which the eyes see,
but which the word offereth and promiseth.

Impossible that he should forsake…

Yea, as it is impossible that God should deny himself and not be God;
so is it impossible that he should forsake those that put their trust in him.

Of nothing…something…

With this service God is highly pleased, because he delighteth of nothing to
make something. So he made the world of nothing: so he raiseth up the poor
and oppressed: so he justifieth the sinner: so he raiseth the dead; and so he
saveth the damned. Whoso then consenteth to God’s nature, and obeyeth his
will, there hoping for something where nothing is, he it is that pleaseth God
and shall never be moved.

Luther, A Commentary on the Psalms
Called Psalms of Degrees

Life happens here once again…

At Trinity Reformed Church, Edgewood, New Mexico, we have some kids in our services. All of our kids. And we delight in that. Sometimes there are disruptions because of our kids. When that happens, I am likely to say “Life happens here.” Because it does. Christ’s church is a place of life, and sometimes life is disrupted and disruptive.

From time to time, as I pick up our spent copies of the Order of Worship to use as firestarters, I find artwork. Some of it is quite good, most is a delight to me, because…well…Life happens here.

I thought I’d share my delight with you.
