Allan R. Bevere: A Prayer for Labor Day

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/gbzcQ4x_ZOI/a-prayer-for-labor-day.html


On this weekend, when we rest from our usual labors, loving Father, we pray for all who shoulder the tasks of human labor-- in the marketplace, in factories and offices, in the professions, and in family living.

We thank you, Lord, for the gift and opportunity of work; may our efforts always be pure of heart, for the good of others and the glory of your name.

We lift up to you all who long for just employment and those who work to defend the rights and needs of workers everywhere.

May those of us who are now retired always remember that we still make a valuable contribution to our Church and our world by our prayers and deeds of charity.

May our working and our resting all give praise to you until the day we share together in eternal rest with all our departed in your Kingdom as you live and reign Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Allan R. Bevere: Ten Rejected Sects of Christianity

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/allanbevere/ROss/~3/KTPaUoJe6zA/ten-rejected-sects-of-christianity.html


Peter_Paul_Rubens_-_Cain_slaying_Abel,_1608-1609
While there are a number of different sects of Christianity today, from Roman Catholic to Seventh-day Adventist, there are even more that were put down by mainstream Christianity. Many of them can be classified as Gnostic, which is normally characterized by the rejection of the material world and embrace of the spiritual world, often in direct conflict with the established religions of the time.

The ten are listed with commentary here.
