The Bible (in summary)

My “elevator speech” explanation of the Bible goes something like this:

The Bible is the story of how God gathers his people together and prepares them to be with him in his Glory forever.

That’s painting with a massive brush, to be sure. But overall, that’s what the scriptures are trying to explain to us.

Daily Prayer

You brought me into life as if into an enchanted paradise. We have seen the sky like a chalice of deepest blue, and listened to the soothing murmur of the forest and melodious music of the streams. It is a pleasure to be your guest. Glory to You, O God, from age to age!

Daily Prayer

O Good One, you know my poverty and foolishness, my blindness and uselessness, but my soul’s suffering is also before you. Heal me from every hidden wound. Keep me from every impulse unpleasing in your sight and hurtful to my neighbor.
