As a result of a summer filled with teaching, frequent preaching, and lots of marking, along with some much-needed family vacation time to recharge, blog posts in recent weeks have been few and far between. With a very full semester of teaching, congregational ministry and, God willing, the completion of several writing projects on the horizon, the prospects for frequent posting in the days ahead are not particularly promising either. That being said, I do hope to have the opportunity to write a few posts on some of my summer reading, including: a reflection on an often under-appreciated aspect of Calvin’s Eucharistic theology and several quotes from and thoughts about James Davison Hunter’s work To Change the World: The Irony, Tragedy, & Possibility of Christianity in the Late Modern World.
For those looking for something to read while they await these future postings, check out this surprising article about the virtue of chastity, which appeared (of all places!) in the Toronto Star. It appears that the article was picked up from the Washington Post.
