I enjoy very much the letter of St. Paul to St. Titus. The entire little book — all three chapters — are on the docket for Evening Prayer this weekend. I’ve just read aloud chapter two.
Hear these words:
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all,* training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions, and in the present age to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly, while we wait for the blessed hope and the manifestation of the glory of our great God and Saviour,* Jesus Christ. He it is who gave himself for us that he might redeem us from all iniquity and purify for himself a people of his own who are zealous for good deeds.
Meanwhile, SLUH has a home ball game tonight against a rival school, so parking is at a premium. I’m walking over there in a few minutes to see the Dauphin Players production of a delightful favorite musical, Brigadoon, at a different location on campus.
And . . . wait for it . . . I successfully changed an outdoor security light this afternoon, dealing with electricity (with success) for the first time. And I’m alive to tell about it.
