Just saw Calvary, by the way, and I would recommend it v v v highly, a prime example of a Christian movie that is not a “Christian movie” if you know what I mean. Really affecting, really shook me up in a good way.
(It does contain reference to child sexual abuse, domestic violence, and violence against animals though)

“Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow. If you sow to your own flesh, you will reap corruption from the flesh; but if you sow to the Spirit, you will reap eternal life from the Spirit. So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.”
— Galatians 6:7-10

“My friends, if anyone is detected in a transgression, you who have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness. Take care that you yourselves are not tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. For if those who are nothing think they are something, they deceive themselves. All must test their own work; then that work, rather than their neighbor’s work, will become a cause for pride.”
— Galatians 6:1-5

“Very truly, I tell you, the hour is coming, and is now here, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For just as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself; and he has given him authority to exercise judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not be astonished at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and will come out — those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.”
— Jesus (John 5:25)

Last night I made an olive oil cake and actually bothered to sprinkle sugar on top before baking, which is how I was reminded that that results in a sweet flaky “crust” on the top of the cake. I am very happy with it (and had a slice last night with a scoop of store-bought limoncello gelato).

One of my favorite finds from the William Stringfellow Papers at Cornell. I’m not sure who created it; I think Stringfellow received it in the aftermath of the Plowshares Eight actions, along with some letters and newsletters of those involved.
