Appreciate your posts and the patristics round up. I know this is shameless self promotion but ... FYI, I occasionally post excerpts from the fathers. Especially sermon bits that correspond with the lectionary.

Thanks.

Paul;

I'm fine with shameless self-promotion, having used it quite insistently over the last few months to get visibility for my own site. I'm going to add you to my blogs links, so I'll remember to check you each week.
