Holy Saturday

posted by Scot McKnight

O God, Creator of heaven and earth: Grant that, as the crucified body
of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath,
so we may await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him
to newness of life; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy
Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Amen and Amen. Holy Saturday greetings to you Scot from the bald headed catman. Stop by for a visit at my blog once in a while. It’s a labor of love, much in process and very ragged right now as I learn the ropes of designing a blog. May your Easter be filled with glorious joy and hope.
Rich

“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His suffering, being made conformable to His death.”
Christ was a suffering servant. Paul surely did enter into the fellowship of Christ’s suffereing. And though Christ had chosen Paul as a vessel for the suffering he would receive, perhps this great desire Paul has here in his epsitle to the church at Phillipi is for us all to know [ginosko: which is an intimate word], the fellowship of Jesus’ suffering. And surely not all of us will suffer as Paul did for Christ (2 Cor. 12:23-28), but we should be encouraged to suffer, and also to know the power, grace, and love of Christ. And it’s all, 100% for the glory of the Lord.
Have a blessed Easter. He lives absolutely sovereign with all authority and power, and love for His children.

Our Common Prayerbook 30 - 3
Psalm 30 thanks God (vv. 1-3, 11-12) and exhorts others to thank God (vv. 4-5). Both emerge from the concrete reality of David's own experience. Here is what that experience looks like:Step one: David was set on high and was flourishing at the hand of God's bounty (v. 7a).Step two: David became too

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
The Cave Man Diet, or Paleo Diet, is getting attention. (Nothing is said about Culver's at all.) The big omission, I have to admit, is that those folks were hunters -- using spears or smacking some rabbit upside the conk or grabbing a fish or two with their hands ... but that's what makes this diet
