Daily Lectionary with Prayers
and Reflections on Scripture and World
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.

Sacrifices, a Reflection on Psalm 50:1-8, 22-23
Psalm 50 begins like a description of a trial. God the Lord summons us to judgment (1). And God is the judge (2-5).
The psalm then reminds us what true worship is--not an occasional public display but rather a consistent practice of thanksgiving (8).
What we do in worship is useful as a reminder of what we are supposed to be doing all the rest of the time.
