Refrain:

  • Have mercy, O God,
    have mercy, O God
    1. Have mercy, O God, in your kindness,
      in love and compassion set me free,
      O wash me more and more from my guilt and my sin.
      O cleanse me, O God, O cleanse me, O God.
    2. A pure heart create for me, O God,
      your Spirit, O Lord, within my heart,
      your presence, O God, is my only desire.
      O heal me, O God, O heal me, O God.

    3. Salvation, the joy that you send to me,
      your presence and Spirit give me strength.
      Your glory and praise I will sing and proclaim.
      O save me, O God, O save me, O God.

    Gingerbread Pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

    GINGERBREAD PANCAKES
    (inspired by Kerbey Lane in Austin)

    Cream together:
    6 eggs
    2/3 cup brown sugar

    Add, then mix well:
    1 cup buttermilk*
    3/4 cup water
    1/2 cup coffee (brewed)
    2 tsp vanilla

    In a seperate bowl, combine dry ingredients:
    5 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 Tbs. cloves
    2 Tbs. cinnamom
    2 Tbs. ginger
    1.5 Tbs. nutmeg

    Add dry ingredients to wet, mixing gently. When combined, mix in:
    1 stick of butter, melted

    This makes about 7-8 thick, plate sized pancakes. SUPER thick. Cut back a tsp of baking soda or so if you prefer less cake-y pancakes.

    * buttermilk is easy to make: 1 c. milk + 1 Tbs. lemon juice or vinegar, I let it stand for a half hour or so, but you could probably push it to even 5 or 10 minutes in a pinch.

    Maundy Thursday

    Tonight at 7PM, you can spend time with Jesus as he shows the kind of community he wishes to form. A community of Basin & Towel, a community of Cup & Bread.

    Ryle on Frequent Communion & Sanctification


    "The person that goes regularly and intelligently to the Lord's Table finds it increasingly hard to yield to sin and conform to the world."

    ~ J.C. Ryle, first Bishop of Liverpool



    You will have multiple opportunities for Table Fellowship with Our Lord this Lent - on Sundays and Wednesdays. I have found that since joining a sacramental church, my personal holiness has increased. I attribute this directly to receiving the Body & Blood of Our Lord, with the assurances of an apostolic priesthood. (When I was in a non-apostolic church, we still received weekly - but I'd be more inclined to say "weakly" since it did not have the sanctifying effect it has on me now.)

    Great Reading for Great Lent

    I ran across an EXCELLENT idea: reading the Church Fathers as a Lenten devotion.

    There are two versions: one is pretty heavy, the other is light.

    I hope that you'll consider doing one of them this Lent.

    Resurrection Fun

    Okay - it's Lent. That means that we're preparing ourselves for one thing: EASTER!!!

    I understand that our repentance (which should be continual, but is especially intentional in this season) is often accompanied by a somber turn of character. However, in the interests of keeping Lent a truly proleptic time of anticipation (kinda like Advent), I encourage everyone to repent of their unbelief in the true, bodily resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Sure, there are people who don't believe it and say as much (some of whom who should really know better). But there are plenty of folks that would confess belief in Jesus' triumph over death, yet the accompanying joy of that fact never reaches their hearts (much less their daily living). Folks, there is only one response to Jesus Christ having been raised for our justification (Rom. 4:25) - a more profound ALLELUIA!!

    As James Dennison reminds us:

    Eschatological death is past for us—Jesus paid it all.

    Eschatological judgment is past for us—Jesus endured it all.

    Eschatological wrath is past for us—Jesus bore it all.

    Eschatological righteousness is present for us—Jesus has it all.

    Eschatological forgiveness is present for us—Jesus gives it all.

    Eschatological life is present for us—Jesus lives it all.

    Even now to those who are in Christ Jesus—no condemnation!

    Even now to those who are in Christ Jesus—no more wrath!

    Even now to those who are in Christ Jesus—no more death!

    Even now to those who are in Christ Jesus—you are justified!

    Even now to those who are in Christ Jesus—you are forgiven!

    Even now to those who are in Christ Jesus—you have been raised from the dead!

    In that spirit, I encourage you all to take this whimsical test by Gary Habermas.
