It’s been a while since I last posted. I’ve been busy with work and esm classes and more work. I will work on doing more to post more often.
Today I read Matthew Chapters 5 and 6. One of my personal favorites has always been the beatitudes. Also how true is Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.”
Here is a link to Trinity Episcopal Church’s Daily Prayers on SoundCloud.
I found this to be a great explanation of why daily devotional time is so important….
There is a purpose for daily devotional practices. We do it for a reason. There is a goal to it. We want to connect back to God who calls us each by name. We want to align our priorities with his. We want to make our individual stories part of his greater, larger, deeper story. We want to be transformed to be as he is so that we may love as he does so that, so graced, we might better understand and express his love for us and for all of creation. — From the book “Inwardly Digest. The Prayer Book as a Guide to a Spiritual Life” by Derek Olsen.
I was officially confirmed yesterday in the episcopal church and record I Ed as a member of Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis. I have also started my coursework at the Episcopal School for Ministry.
