Thinking Clearly in a World of Virtual Knowledge

This is an excellent post by Asbury NT Professor Ben Witherington.  Here’s a quote.  I hope you will take a few minutes and read the rest.

Human beings have an infinite capacity to convince themselves they are seeing or experiencing or learning something, when in fact they are fooling themselves. My point in this particular post has to do with virtual knowledge, the kind you often find for free on the internet. The kind that can get you in a heap of trouble and make you a bad witness to what the Bible actually says and teaches.

Others Are Discovering the Daily Office

These two videos come out of New Life Church in Queens, NYC.  Their story as a church is also quite interesting in itself.  I am particularly fascinated by their discovery of the Daily Offices, a practice that has been the anchor of Anglican spirituality.  Thomas Cranmer condensed and simplified the more rigorous monastic prayer cycle making it more accessible to the average layman.  I highly recommend Morning and Evening Prayer to all of us.  The longer forms are in the front of our prayer book.  In the back there are shorter forms more suitable for families with small children.
