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.

Reflection on the One-Year-Bible readings for December 25

Happy are the people to whom such blessings fall;
happy are the people whose God is the Lord.
(Psalm 144:15)

Zechariah 8:1-23
Jerusalem will be restored. Nothing is impossible for the Lord. Your response is to be the kind of people that deserve this kindness.

Revelation 16:1-21
The wrath of God

Psalm 144:1-15
A prayer in time of war.

Proverbs 30:29-31
Three things are stately in their stride; 
four are stately in their gait: 
the lion, which is mightiest among wild animals 
and does not turn back before any; 
the strutting rooster, the he-goat, 
and a king striding before his people.

Prayer for Today: Make us worthy to look forward to your coming not fear your judgment of us. Amen.
