• “Call no one happy before his death; a man will be known through his children.” (Ecclesiasticus 11:28)

  • Preaching this evening for the first time since Trinity Sunday in June! Prayers appreciated.

  • Who else is preaching for Advent 1 this year?

  • I’m tempted to just read Isaiah 64 and then say “amen” for my Advent sermon…“Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down…” Indeed.

  • Honestly, I wish we sang “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” and “Joy to the World” all year long.

  • I haven’t heard this many Greek letters since my first semester of biblical Greek in college! May the Lord have mercy upon those in the path of all these storms.

  • Confession: I’m regularly surprised by how much some Anglicans hate, among other things: cassock-albs, the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, and/or “three streams” language as a descriptive framework for the one holy Church’s multifaceted catholicity.

  • Hey everyone! I’m actively looking for work and would appreciate your help! Whether it’s for a ministry position or otherwise, it’s time for our young family of 4 to move out of our basement apartment and toward whatever’s next! #OpenToWork

  • Is it just me or has there been a drastic increase in the number of things that are seen as politically controversial that ought not be? Have things always been this bad?

  • Thoughts on Isaiah commentaries? I’ve got both of Motyer’s in Logos. Trying to decide whether or not to get Oswalt for $80 (NICOT, 2 vols) and/or Childs for $27 (OTL). Immediate need: Advent sermon on Isaiah 64.

  • Dang. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so seen by a book review. mereorthodoxy.com/book-revi…

  • “Astoundingly 86% of the president’s voters regard Mr Biden’s victory as illegitimate. Mr Trump’s sowing of distrust in elections may prove his most damaging legacy.” espresso.economist.com/dab9cfb72…

  • We simply can’t let “true” mean “politically expedient” or “makes me and my tribe more powerful.”

  • “Inconvenient” does not equal “fake” or “untrue.” There is no evidence of significant or widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. The bare result of the election (A won, B lost, within a perfectly normal margin) doesn’t count as evidence of fraud or a stolen election.

  • What biblical/theological concepts do you think the church in the USA needs to re-learn from Scripture (and un-learn from the USA) right now? For me, I think that “power,” “justice,” “speech,” and “fear” are at the top of the list.

  • Pro-life should entail pro-truth.

  • I’m relieved that Trump lost, but there’s always plenty of work for the church in the USA to do, regardless of who’s in the White House. Let’s pray for our leaders and hold them accountable to support both social justice and moral order (to borrow the And Campaign’s motto).

  • In the midst of claims of “fake news” and “fake votes,” let’s all take the opportunity to examine a particularly nefarious cognitive bias that affects us all: confirmation bias. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conf…

  • Count all the votes. Obviously!

  • Near perfect weather today, which was a nice counterbalance to (gestures broadly at the divided country) all this! #mbnov

  • “But he (my servant) will astonish many nations. Kings will be silenced because of him, because they will see what they haven’t seen before; what they haven’t heard before, they will ponder.” (Isaiah 52:13–15, CEB) #mbnov

  • Regardless of the outcome of this election, I pray that the @AndCampaign’s tribe would increase and that the church in the USA would regain its prophetic independence from any and every political party. May we Christians abandon the false gospels on the Right and the Left!

  • “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” They will also be called a lot of other unsavory things! But their blessing is unassailable.

  • I can’t concentrate on anything but the smoke when the world’s on fire.

    I must concentrate on carrying the water when the world’s on fire.

  • Good stuff from Tim Dalrymple at CT. Like him, I’m also a part of the “Church Remnant.” I appreciate his framework and his exhortation to love our brothers and sisters in Christ with whom we disagree politically.
