Reading the Early Church Fathers by James L. Papandrea
"This is a very good book on early church history and the development of doctrine in the context of the history of the time. At times it was a bit elementary for me, but then I am a theologian. He is writing for what I take to be the educated laype..." Read more of this review »

“Learn from the puppies: Don't clutter where you live.”
James L. Papandrea, Spiritual Blueprint: How We Live, Work, Love, Play, and Pray

“To realize our potential, we have to be willing to change and grow. In order to do this, we have to recognize our unchangeable identity as children of God, made in the image of God, so that we will feel free to change some behaviors and mature in character without feeling like we have to become someone else. Then we can allow our relationship with God to help us mature into the likeness of Christ. So change is not loss; it’s gain.”
James L. Papandrea, Spiritual Blueprint

“Remember to incorporate rhythms that give you time to stop and think and live intentionally. The work week already has a regular rhythm built into it. It is called the weekend. Make sure you have a weekend. Not all jobs are Monday through Friday, but make sure that you have some time off of work each week to spend time with friends and family. You may think you’re getting ahead by working extra hours, but you’re not gaining anything—you are only trading your life now for something later—something that may not materialize. If you have to work two jobs or extra hours to pay for education or just to put food on the table, you still need to make some time for rest or you will burn out. Fun is not a luxury—it clears your head so you can do better at your job when you go back to work. Therefore, make sure you schedule time for relaxation, fun, worship, and prayer.”
James L. Papandrea, Spiritual Blueprint

“Suffering is like an echo - reflecting it only prolongs it.”
