Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord (a.k.a. Christmas)
While others are celebrating on this joyous night of nights with family and friends, what am I doing now that I’m back from dinner at Rev. Lui’s house with his family and Rev. Lam?
Finishing off the last two remaining drams in my bottle of Glenfiddich single malt while reading.
While others would read something nicer, like a novel or something, me of all people has to read these things:
- Solo Scriptura, Sola Scriptura, and the Question of Interpretive Authority
- Hermeneutics and the Authority of Scripture
Oh well. At least it’s with some good whisky.
Collect for the Nativity of Our Lord
O God, you make us glad by the yearly festival of the birth of your only Son Jesus Christ:
Grant that we, who joyfully receive him as our Redeemer,
may with sure confidence behold him when he comes to be our Judge;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.
