Audible Sacraments — N.T. Wright

    It is also important to remind preachers that, just as some of the Reformers spoke of the sacraments as God’s “visible words”, so sermons are supposed to be “audible sacraments.” — N.T. Wright, The Last Word: Beyond the Bible Wars to a New Understanding of the Authority of Scripture

Jewish Sabbath Prayer

    Days Pass,
    Years vanish,
    And we walk sightless among miracles.


In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength. (Isaiah 30:15, NRSV)

Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. (Jer 6:16, NRSV)
