Preface for Paschaltide
It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto thee, O Lord, holy Father, almighty, everlasting God; but chiefly are we bound to praise thee for the glorious Resurrection of thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord; for he is the very Paschal Lamb, who was sacrificed for us, and hath taken away the sin of the world; who by his death hath destroyed death, and by his rising to life again hath won for us everlasting life.

Reblog: Brent Bailey
My next post is coming fairly slowly. To cover myself, and more importantly because it's fantastic, I'd like to recommend this post from Brent Bailey at Odd Man Out. He is one of the writers on homosexuality that I like best (along with Melinda Selmys, Steve Gershom, Joshua Gonnerman, Eve Tushnet, and a few others), and this post deals with the lived experience of gay Christianity -- something that I see less often than I'd like. It's easy to get caught up in the "issues," which, while they are legitimately important, frequently have very little to do with the daily lives of the spirituality of -- well, anybody really. Please enjoy.
