It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

A Prayer of Thanksgiving, a Reflection on Colossians 1:1-6

When Paul wrote to the Colossians, he told them that he had been praying prayers of thanksgiving for what he had heard about them. He said that he was thankful for their faith in Christ and for the love they had for the ones known as saints. He told them that they had heard the gospel and that what they had heard had changed them and through them was changing others.

What they have heard, they are living out. How about your congregation? Could Paul write this letter to you?
