In a religious culture thousands of miles wide and one milliliter deep, it's time to re-discover the true Jesus and his message of peace.
I embrace a dynamic view of Holy Scripture. Each week, I gather with area ministers across many different Christian denominations to discuss the lectionary passages we are working through for that week’s sermon. I spend a considerable amount of time reading what others, far, far smarter than me, have thought, written and preached about these same passages from long ago in church history and more recently from modern scholarship and in dialogue with other academic disciplines.
Please allow me to offer my heartfelt appreciation for everyone's love concern and prayers for my well-being. I am doing tremendously better after a bicycle accident on Thursday, July 30.
Before you begin reading Ephesians, I offer these words of reminder and instructions that should guide all our scripture reading.
