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.

Great is the Lord, a Reflection on Psalm 145:1-5, 17-21

If you have trouble finding words for prayer then consider Psalm 145 as a guide. And, if you aren't having any trouble finding words, you might consider it anyway. This psalm is a song of praise to God.
Every day I will bless you,
and praise your name forever and ever.
Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised
It reminds us to think about God and remember that so many have helped us to know about God and because they they shared with us we are not to keep those thoughts to ourselves:
One generation shall laud your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your works, I will meditate.
We are part of a long line of worshippers who have praised God, learned about God's care, and told others:
My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord,
and all flesh will bless his holy name foever and ever.
