Thanks.

Thanks for the heads-up. I keep forgetting to go over to Janet's blog (sorry, Janet!). This Pentecost series is terrific. And her post for May 22 on Paul made me think of your previous post on Francesca Murphy's piece, where you commented that you were "never sure where the discretion end of valor becomes cowardice" when it comes to engaging secularists in argument.

Here's the relevant part in Janet's post -- it's Paul talking about the action of the Holy Spirit in his life:

But now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem. What will happen to me there I do not know, except that in one city after another the Holy Spirit has been warning me that imprisonment and hardships await me. Yet I consider life of no importance to me, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to bear witness to the Gospel of God’s grace. “But now I know that none of you to whom I preached the kingdom during my travels will ever see my face again." Acts 20:22-25
And Janet comments:
Once again, the Holy Spirit brings a message that isn't what one would want to hear, but Paul is steadfast. He knows that soon he will suffer, but he has suffered before in the cause of Christ and is willing to do so again.

Well, since you said "terrific" I think I can forgive you. ;-)
