Our Scripture for today is Psalm 68:4-5 which reads: “Sing unto God, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name Jah, and rejoice before him. A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in his holy habitation.”
Our History of Christianity quote today is from Dr. Don Sweeting. He said: “Church history is one of the most helpful studies in the preparation of Christian ministers. It gets us beyond our natural shortsightedness, faddishness and pride. It becomes a source of warning, wisdom and encouragement. It provides spiritual sparks to awaken us and lift our eyes so that we might have renewed hope. And it gets us beyond our own American evangelical amnesia.”
Today, in the History of Christianity, we are looking at “Athanasius [ATH-A-NAY-SEE-US] of Alexandria (Part 7)” from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez’s fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1). This section is titled, “Further Trials”.
