Dover Beach

posted on July 27, 2011 by Musings

We have taken a break from the brutal heat by letting our poetry postings of the last few days take us on a trip to the beach.  The ocean strikes primordial, spiritual chords deep within most of us, and the beach calls up childhood memories of sunny days, shells, and sand castles.  Sometimes, though, it rains at the beach, and today we thought we’d post a melancholy beach poem.

The poem is 160 or so years old but could have been written last week.  The changes wrought by modernity that destroyed Arnold’s romantic understanding of the world still trouble many today.  Arnold himself was religious if not orthodox in his Christianity.  In God and the Bible, he wrote:  “At the present moment two things about the Christian religion must surely be clear to anybody with eyes in his head. One is, that men cannot do without it; the other, that they cannot do with it as it is.”

Neither Out Far Nor In Deep

posted on July 23, 2011 by Musings

It feels like we have been in the dog days of summer forever around here.  To cool things, we have some refreshing poetry, photos, and images that we will be posting over the next few days.  They are a reminder of the majesty of the God’s creation that surrounds us and renews us.  Enjoy!

Church Of Bangladesh

Part of the experience for our First Presbyterian pilgrims in Bangladesh will be building relationships with the Church of Bangladesh and St. Andrew’s Theological College, a seminary which trains persons for service in the Church. Les Morgan describes this relationship in the Outreach Blog at  Beginning of a Pilgrimage.

Here are links to learn more about the our brothers and sisters in ministry in Bangladesh:
