A 2010 meditation on humility. Humility is the key to peace in the churches.

E4unity : A Prophetic Advocate for Unity and Peace

Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity

Ephesians 4:1-6, Luke 14:1-11

I try to stay up with what is happening in some of the historic wings of the Church- including the Reformed tradition, and the Anglican tradition (see my toolbag). As I have said before, I have received much from men and women of many of the diverse displays of God’s grace at work in His churches. Last Sunday’s meditation by Robert Hart is one of the most recent examples. I greatly appreciated seeing again an important truth from the Scriptures through the eyes of a faithful Anglican.

People today love to use the word “spiritual” as a substitute for genuine religion that makes moral demands. Saint Paul uses the word “spiritual” to mean overcoming the temptations of the world, the flesh and the Devil by walking in the Holy Spirit. The most practical thing we see in today’s Gospel and Epistle…

And #hope maketh not ashamed !

E4unity : A Prophetic Advocate for Unity and Peace

A Blogger filled with Hope

A number of things such as the Pope’s visit to U.S.A. and the economy and the presidential primaries, well you get the picture; the temptation to either stick one’s head in the sand or to be overcome with despair, have me thinking a lot about the theme of hope. I want to introduce this theme into my blog at this point, but rest assured it won’t be the last time it will come up. Every faith system by which man is known to live by includes the idea of hope and it seems to be another one of those basic traits that we all have in common as human beings, created in the image of God. So let’s begin with Pope Benedict XVI himself and what I see and hear in him to be a central spiritual force just as it was in his predecessor…

E4unity : A Prophetic Advocate for Unity and Peace

A review of “The Radical Disciple“.  

For some forty years now, I”ve had a growing respect for the faith-tradition known as Anglican, or The Church of England. I often wonder just how many American Christians understand the debt we owe to this tradition whether we are Baptists, Methodists, Nazarenes, Episcopalians, Salvation Army (Sallies) and many other independents that came from the bosom of the English Church.

I don’t mind recording my own debt publically for men like J.I.Packer, J.C.Ryle, Charles and John Wesley, and a host of others from the Anglican Church. One such man who has blessed American churches for those forty years and especially the cause of international evangelism and missions is John Stott. It appears that his final book will be his farewell as far as his written contributions to the churches. Recently I found this great review which I will consider my own tribute to John Stott…
