Fr. Glenn: Shepherding All

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

While reviewing the “Good Shepherd” discourse of Jesus in John 10 the other day, I found myself hearkening back to yesteryear growing up on our little family ranch. Many a frozen morning Dad sent my brothers and I (grumble, grumble) to chop ice off of water troughs, toss bales of hay and take the count … to seek the lost lest they be in distress. Yet, especially in winter, every mooing face pleads in anxious anticipation, and their unspoken but evident joy of being fed is all the thanks you need. It is little wonder that so many dedicate themselves to helping desperately poor peoples

Home Country: Dry Fly Fishing

Home Country
By SLIM RANDLES

It was just one of those things. It didn’t really mean Marvin Pincus had lost his mind. Consider this yourself for a minute. Marvin had opened the mail that morning and in it was the Fenwick glass fly rod he’d ordered. Oh, it was used, of course. The new ones are graphite. But there’s a feel to a Fiberglass Fenwick that only a man dedicated to a life of using dry flies can appreciate.

The weather was gorgeous. The fish were biting on Lewis Creek. But there was a hitch. Marvin had broken his ankle the previous week and was temporarily in a wheelchair. It was his right ankle, so he

Fr. Glenn: The Nobility Of Gratitude

By Fr. Glenn Jones:

I was watching “Saving Private Ryan” the other day—a movie which has become known as one of the best cinematic portrayals of war and combat. It is a tale of a small unit of Army Rangers sent to retrieve the surviving son—Private Ryan—of a family of four sons, this one in an Airborne unit behind enemy lines in D-Day Normandy, France. While successful in finding and saving Ryan, those Rangers are ultimately almost all killed in combat as a consequence. At the end of the movie, the scene fast-forwards to the now elderly Ryan visiting the military cemetery in France in which the leader

Father Theophan: Assurance

Broken pottery. Photo by Fr. Theophan

The clay was wedged completely, the pot was thrown evenly, it was dried slowly and thoroughly, it was bisqued correctly and glazed impeccably. It will be a perfect, beautiful, and functional pot.

Right?

Ah, maybe.

Maybe the handle shrinks and twists funny, maybe the glaze mixes and fluxes unexpectedly, maybe a hidden imperfection responds to the higher firing temperature and decides to become a crack.

There are a thousand ways that pottery fails to live up to the potter’s expectation.
