Since it's the Christmas season...

… I have a link which Mr. Kalb and Turnabout regulars may find inspirational - actually, I’ve posted it already, but just in case anybody missed it, I’ll link my previous comment, where one can follow the link to the essay I’m referring to, [url=]here[/url]. I’m sure you’ll find it a blessing, as I have.


… I don’t know if the German Lutheran pastor in Tehran was familiar with the Underground Railroad, and how fleeing slaves could identify safe houses by their having… a candle in the window, but it’s very possible he might have known about it, and thus borrowed it… I’ve always liked the lyrics to a popular CCR song which made use of this, “Long As I Can See the Light”…

Thanks for posting this. It’s surprising to see someone successfully make the whole of the Athanasian Creed the climax of a story.

Rem tene, verba sequentur.

Rem tene, verba sequentur.

Yes, it is indeed surprising, and inspiring…

BTW, I’ve noticed something - though it is one of our doctrinal standards, I’ve never heard my church ever have a public recitation of the Athanasian Creed; we regularly recite the Apostles’ Creed (almost every week, in the second daily service); we occasionally (maybe a few times a year or so) recite the Nicene Creed, but we never seem to recite the Athanasian Creed, which I think is a pity. (My church, as most of you regulars will know but some newcomers may not, is a traditional Reformed church.) Has anyone ever recited the Athanasian Creed in their church (I’m particularly thinking Roman Catholic, Reformed, and/or Lutheran readers)?
