Psinging the Psalms

Following on from my last blog post, when I’m learning something new I think context helps with the memory process. My kids believe context helps with the communication process as well, and would be thrilled if I could add context to any of my communications… To serve this end I took a whole stack of books out of our amazing library about the Psalms. When...

Gifting vs. Grasping

I’ve been reading a fascinating book at the encouragement of a friend. It’s called “Theology of the Body for Beginners“* Very cool. One of the lessons which struck me was the one on gift vs. grasp. It’s our current social epidemic. In the Garden God had many gifts for Adam and Eve. Instead of trusting Him and waiting for Him to gift...
