Quote of the Week. . .

Food for Thought. . .

The second century bishop of what is now Lyon, Irenaeus, is reported to have written, "The glory of God is the living man (sic), and the life of man is the vision of God."  The text is often mistranslated as "The glory of God is man fully alive." However you translate it, the thrust is that God desires for us to live as fully into the lives we've been given as possible.  This is God's vision or God's glory. Far from the guilt and shame that too often typifies the church's message. Irenaeus reminds us of the passion and compassion of God that is central to the faith.   To read more, click here. . .
