When I visited Conception Abbey recently, I asked for an icon of St. Barnabas.  I was disappointed to learn that neither the book store nor the Printery House at the Abbey had such an item.  Barnabas, one of my favorite characters in the New Testament evidently does not get the respect he deserves!Why do I like Barnabas?  Because he exhibits all of the best characteristics of a Christian coach.  We can learn a lot from Barnabas and how he inv»

When I visited Conception Abbey recently, I purchased an icon of St. Patrick.  I chose this not as a means to facilitate worship but because of my admiration for the pioneering evangelist.   I often include George Hunter’s book The Celtic Way of Evangelism on the required reading list of the Missional Church class I teach from time to time.  Hunter explains very clearly how a pagan people were won to the Christian faith, establishing an arm»

During August I spent two weeks in the Kansas City area and northern Missouri related to my work with Central Baptist Theological Seminary.  Seven of those days were at Conception Abbey, a Benedictine monastery, located on a beautiful site in the middle of rolling farmland. The monks pray in the Abbey Church (minor basilica) five times a day—vigils, lauds, daily Eucharist, vespers and compline.  At the center of their worship is chanting of»

It is like water in a channel—if it once break out, it will have its course. Its not acting is easier to be compassed than its bounding. John OwenThe Mortification»

Christians often adopt an anthropocentric conception of the purpose of the history of salvation. The trope goes that God became fully man in Jesus of Nazareth so that man might be saved. It is important to note that this is true, and is reflected in St. Athanasius' line that "God became man so that man might become God". Nonetheless, it would be a mistake to confine the effects of the salvific work of God to just the human. A starting point would»

10. I call architecture frozen music. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. 9. A building has integrity just like a man. And just as seldom. Ayn Rand. 8. Minimalism in conception demands maximalism in execution. Unknown. 7. Space has always been the spiritual dimension of architecture. It is not the physical statement of the structure so much as what it contains that moves us. Arthur Erickson. 6. Light, God’s eldest daughter, is a principal beauty in a b»

God had promised a son to Abram. At the same time, God prevented conception. This is the will of God? Go figure. (Photo by Daniel Skorodjelow (Own work CC-BY-SA-3.0 or GFDL), via Wikimedia Commons This tension eventually proved too much for Abram’s wife, Sarai. It seemed the only thing worse than the barren land she lived in was the barren womb she bore. So Sarai pointed to Hagar, her Egyptian maid, and told Abram to provide a child through her»
