aut vitis, aut ignis

I asked our church family a couple weeks ago, “How long have we been in John’s Gospel on Sunday mornings?”

One of the sisters had it marked in her Bible.  We started on August 20, 2006.  The prologue of John’s Gospel is what got me excited about starting a blog, too.

We are meditating on the rich, opening metaphor of John 15.  May the juice of Jesus, our only hope, flow through us. 

Consider the sober words of Augustine:  aut vitis, aut ignis.

Google the phrase.  The pope back in 2000 arrives at the top of my search list.
