Upgraded

Newer Version of PivotX

Our blogs have been updated to the latest version of PivotX. Things seem to be working correctly. However, not every link was tested; not every part of the site was tested for full functionality. If you find something not working correctly, let me know.

Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany of Our Lord

Matthew 5:38-48

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

"Blessed are you...because of me," we heard Jesus proclaim. "I did not come to destroy [the Law and the prophets,] but to fulfill [them]," we heard Jesus proclaim. "For I say to you, that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven," we heard Jesus proclaim. And, we heard Him tell how the Law puts it with regard to murder, adultery, divorce, and oaths.

Now, four weeks after starting it, we come to the end of St. Matthew's fifth chapter, yet not the end of the Christ's Sermon on the Mount. We'll save that for two chapters down the line.

Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany of Our Lord

Matthew 5:21-37

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

The mind of Old Adam (your own minds) hears the Law of God, and to him it is simple. It's simple because that's the way we want to hear it, to make it manageable, as you have heard me describe Old Adam's twisting of God's Word in the past. He likes to make God's Law manageable in order to know just how much you have to do—to know just how much you can get away with.

A Funeral Homily

John 14:1-7; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Friends and family of Oral, the Lord and Savior of all says through the pen of St. Paul, "we do not want you...to grieve like the rest of men who have no hope." This is the grace and mercy of God in action for those who are in Christ who mourn the loss of a loved one.

After hearing a crash outside my office (snow and/or ice falling off the roof) I caught a glimpse of these curved icicles.

Lightning Are Getting New Sweaters

Gone is the Black (yay!), Gone is the Silver (boo!)

Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman is trying to create a simple, classic look for his team. In some regards, he has succeeded. In others, not so much.

I Want My Global Warming

yeah...right

I woke up this morning to The Weather Channel telling me that it was -20°F this morning, with a wind chill of -47°F. And it's only supposed to get up to -3°F today, and down to -19°F tonight. I'm glad I decided not to go into the office this morning.
