A New Year Resolution!
Thanks to my good friend, Pastor William Weedon, for throwing down the gauntlet on a very wise and worthy resolution for the new year. I share it with all of you. He writes on his blog:
In the New Year, by the grace and mercy of God, I will:
1. Read the daily Scripture readings assigned in LSB for morning and evening (pp. 299-304).
2. Pray the daily Psalms assigned in the Psalter Chart (p. 304).
Read the assigned section of the Book of Concord for Monday-Friday for
each of the 52 weeks of the year (Concordia, p. 19-22 – note: they are
presented in chronological order of their writing)
I offer this
as a suggestion because I think it would be utterly achievable for anyone – even the busiest. The easiest way to accomplish the above
would be to pray Matins and Vespers daily (using the assigned Psalms
and Scripture readings) and to read sometime during the course of the
day (maybe before, at, or after lunch?) the page or two assigned from
the Book of Concord. What strength would come to us from such an
immersion in the psalter, such a reading through the Word, and such a
review of the Church’s Symbols!
Anyone willing to take up the challenge?
