Every now and then the reality sinks in of my complete failure to love my wife well. I am naturally task oriented, quite unthoughtful of others, and often completely self-absorbed with myself. Yes, I know. Why did she marry me in the first place? Well, our "dark sides" often do not manifest themselves fully until … Continue reading “…as Christ Loved the Church”

This afternoon my eldest, who is 14, made an insightful comment. While reading Jane Eyre, she was struck by how outwardly "respectable" and "moral" people appeared, but that, while looking down upon and disdaining the "unrespectable," they seemed to know very little about grace.

Since we are in the season of advent (the "coming" of the Messiah, Jesus), I thought I'd post a few "promise & fulfillment" prophecies regarding the birth and ministry of Jesus.
