A Knife, a Sheepskin, Sandals, and a Flute

Saturday, December 15, 2018

Shepherds at Work in the Fields of Bethlehem Those shepherds in the fields near Bethlehem were tough guys. Any decent person of the time would have considered them outcasts—on par with thieves and robbers. Nobody wanted to have anything to do with them. So, of course, it is to these people in the fields that the angels first appear. Luther’s words here are most fitting: “This is the first sermon about the newborn little child, our Lord Jesus, that was brought by the angels from heaven to us here on earth.” What ...

Thursday, December 13, 2018

Fatherhood rings true Reaching a goal, like becoming boxing’s World Heavyweight Champion, isn’t always enough. Creed II (2018) continues the story of Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan). He is the son of Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers)—the result of an adulterous relationship—who, with the help of Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone), Apollo’s boxing rival, eventual trainer and friend, gains notoriety in the ring without using his father’s name. He eventually accepts the Creed name and legacy and fights as Adonis Creed. One of the strongest themes of the first Creed (2015) film was ...

Table Talk: Draw Us Up, O Lord

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

By: Mathew Block “Thou hast made us for Thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” These words, taken from the writings of St. Augustine, are a reminder that no one finds true peace outside of God. That doesn’t stop us from trying, though; we are all of us restlessly searching for meaning. Within every person, there is a deep understanding—acknowledged or not—that something is wrong with the world. That something is wrong with us. We are sinners, and the Law written on our hearts reveals to each ...

Rowling and Yates set ...
