January 02 2024 By dvirtue Did the King's speech bode well for his faithful subjects in 2024, a year that could be momentous?

January 02 2024 By dvirtue PHILLIPS BROOKS -- Liberal Episcopal Churchman

Gillis J. Harp, in his terrific biography of Brooks (Brahmin Prophet: Phillips Brooks and the Path of Liberal Protestantism), shows how he helped guide the Episcopal Church into the liberal Protestant way of all mainline denominations. He helped move the church away from the centrality of the cross to focus mostly on the Incarnation - away from salvation by Christ alone to moral improvement.

December 30 2023 By dvirtue C. S. Lewis's "Christmas Sermon For Pagans"

Last year about this time, Lewis expert Crystal Kirgiss made it available on her blog. It is getting attention now because Kerry J.

December 26 2023 By dvirtue THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS

Scripture gives some ray of hope but how long can I rely on scraps of paper written 2,000 and more years ago? "My soul magnifies the Lord," says the expectant Mary on learning that she will be the theotokos, the God-bearer. Where was her safety net, her retirement account, her Medicare supplement? I may have all of these and more, but a lot of good they're doing me in the depths of despair.
