Why You Should Be Reading the Puritans...

"I was bemiracled with mercy; as the sea overflows and breaks down the banks, so the mercy of God broke down the banks of my sin, and mercy sweetly flowed into my soul. You that have been monuments of God's mercy, should be trumpets of praise; you that have tasted the Lord is gracious, tell others what experiences you have had of God's mercy, that you may encourage them to seek to him for mercy."

--Thomas Watson, from A Body of Divinity

long time, no see!

Sprite has kindly brought it to my attention that I've been conspicuously absent lately.

My excuse?

A no-carb diet. (Get it? WayBread? Carbs? Ah, the perils of an all-too-sophisticated sense of humor!)

By way of apology, I encourage you to meet my pastor.

This is part 1 of a 3-part interview between he and C. J. Mahaney.

(Here's Part 2, and here's Part 3, as well.)

Now lay off, Sprite! Geez.
