Note on the word Energion

The name Energion originally was the name of a role playing game system I designed with some help from my friends. Though I am no longer making use of the system, I have begun to make the old manuals and some related software available on the internet. Look at the Energion Role-Playing Game System.

Threads from Henry’s Web

  • Paul and the Law Tangle
    I’m working through key elements of Galatians 3 & 4 tonight and drawing in some material from Romans and elsewhere. My main topic will be to look at Paul’s use of the word “law” in these passages. My main references other than the Bible text will be Galatians: A Participatory Study Guide pp. 43-47 and Meditations on the Letters of Paul, Chapter VIII, pp. 89-97 Here’s a sample: No Jew would deny the wisdom of Torah, or disavow its validity….

If you seek only friends and associates who agree with you, you’re missing out on a great blessing.
  • Are Sermons of Value?
    I have very frequently spoken disparagingly of sermons. I prefer more interactive activities in smaller groups as a way of learning and passing on information. It’s commonly said that a pastor is lucky if, on a Sunday, any congregants remember the topic of the previous week’s sermon, much less what was said about it. On the other hand I remember stunning Dr. James Londis, who was pastor of the Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church when I was an 18-year-old college student… Read More Read More
  • No Paul Study Tonight
    Due to scheduling conflicts, or more precisely a wall-to-wall day, I will not be doing my video Bible study tonight. I’ll resume next week. In the meantime, you might enjoy my interview with Thomas Hudgins. You can read a text interview here (not a transcript, but a text version of the interview), or watch:
