Cap-Quotes: Calvin and Preaching

Last week I listed a number of quotations from Scott M Manetsch’s book, Calvin’s Company of Pastors on ministry and life during and just after John Calvin’s life. Here are a few more on the subject of how preaching was practiced and received in Geneva during the era of the Reformation: The Ministry of the Word …the pulpit stood at the epicenter of controversy and change in reformed Geneva. In the minds of Geneva’s...

The Musings of An Ordinary Pastor

Another re-post from over 4 years ago. I post it again as THE CAPRANICA re-launches its regularity as a reminder of what this blog is about. I am an ordinary pastor. That is, I know myself well enough and I have been around enough extraordinary pastors to be well aware of how ordinary I am. The content, regularity, and writing style found here at THE CAPRANICA all document the degree of my ordinariness. Actually, I enjoy being...

A Re-Post for a Sort of Re-Launch

For many months now I’ve been wanting to take up contributing to my neglected blog presence. As the mayhem begins again, I start with a re-post (from over 4 years ago) of an article on why an ordinary pastor, like me, should regularly blog. Wouldn’t blogging be persona non grata in the life of the truly ordinary pastor? Maybe a few years ago, but no longer. I would suspect that the majority of pastors blogging today are...

iPad and Pastoral Ministry: An Update – Part 1

Last January, when Apple announced the introduction, I published a post about how I thought ordinary pastors might make use of this new category of computer.  A follow-up post is long over due.  In fact, when looking over which articles tend to be most perused, I find that previous article continually referenced. I purchased my iPad (the original version) just days after it was released.  I immediately began to put it to use in my...

Cap in the World

Before reading further, know that this is hardly profound – but very cool. Albert Mohler posted a tweet for “Public Profiler” this past week. What? You haven’t heard of it?  Put your last name in and find out where in the world your name is concentrated. I mean, really, how many times am I asked, “Where is ‘Capranica‘ from?  I will simply send them to Public Profiler – or this post.  So,...
