If you are new to reading my blog (or waiting to read a post on my blog because I haven't been an active writer lately), please read this post about how we as a community memorize God's word together. This is a smaller version of what our friends at Living Proof are doing. Each month on the first, come and leave a comment with one or two verses you are memorizing for that month. This creates accountability and encouragement to persevere in this foundational spiritual discipline.
If you have any questions about this process, please email me.
For those of you that live in Tucson, on Sunday evening, January 27th after Second Mile's gathering we will meet for a salad and sandwiches potluck dinner. We will share some of our favorite verses from 2012 with each other. I will give another mini-lesson on my own memorizing system. And, of course, I'll give a pep talk about why this discipline is so important in our lives. If you are completely sold out on this process, this get together is for you. If you are uncertain about memorizing, this get together is for you. If you would simply like more information, this get together is for you.
Men, you are invited to attend, also! This is good for our whole body, not just half of it.
Please comment with what you are memorizing for January. If you are not on Facebook, leave an rsvp for the Jan 27th event, as well.
I will be working on Colossians 3:15.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
I'm looking forward to taking God's word into my heart in 2013. Are you? I can't wait to see what you're memorizing!
