The Ultimate Word

"The ultimate Word is not a paragraph but a person. If Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, then the heart of proclamation is personal and relational, not propositional."

I've never been more proud of my homeland...


Here's a little zydeco Obama anthem from Louisiana... The music of my people!

Really, I'm so proud. For most of my life I thought my immediate family and I were the only Democrats left in Louisiana.

And now - two weeks before the election - let's take a little break from my obvious political preferences and simply pause to consider the seriousness of all that faces our nation.

Almighty God, to whom we must account for all our powers and privileges: Guide the people of the United States in the election of officials and representatives; that, by faithful administration and wise laws, the rights of all may be protected and our nation be enabled to fulfill your purposes; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP, 822)
