"abide in me as I abide in you..." John 15:4
Did staff lectio today with you guys...I love that discipline. I also did the BCP hours this morning.Peace,-t
Enjoyed staff lectio and some great discussion I've been having with my kids about God.
Started the story of Joshua. I did a more intense bible study of Joshua this past spring, so it is nice to just read the text and already have some points of reference and remember why I love it so much.
I did the BCP daily office yesterday and today. I'm really into the creed right now. Also trying to meditate on the Lord's prayer.
I've had a slow actual reading week, but a great relational conversational week with my family. It's been cool to connect in Christ as a family. I know I need to get on the reading also, but I'm loving this and thinking that God is okay with it too.
Friday Confessional:I confess to having skipped confession the past few weeks. I think this was a benign skipping because mostly I forgot. Although, it seems obvious that the omission says something about the importance I place on the role of confession…yikes.I confess to all sorts of sins from talking too much to thinking terrible thoughts. I confess that I’m somewhat ambivalent about how sinful I am – which probably means I’m terribly so.I confess to often screwing up priorities and serving myself above those I love.I confess to being a helpless consumer. First, I bought a new golf club and now really want a new backpack (my bag is on its last leg and I’ve had it for 8 years…that’s how I’m rationalizing it, can you tell?) and I’ve got my heart set on a new really nice, although expensive one. I tried to resist but the fight is all but over – I’m hoping to get it tonight.I confess that having a church job is a really great job. It has its down spots but I have to say that I don’t appreciate it enough, it’s really fun.
