A new year, new opportunities and a short time to look backwards before charging forward. Of first importance, there’s Bible reading. Last year, I did a modified reading plan based on the ESV’s plan in the ESV Journaling Bible. This year, I’m striving for more consistency, reading all of it, and a new tactic. Some time ago, I read on the ESV Blog page about a blogger who was describing how to memorize entire books, namely here, Epistles. So, I’m trying his “Uploading Chunks” (warning – PDF!). So, we’ll see. If you’re looking for a plan for reading scripture, you can check this page out. They can be delivered to your inbox, to your RSS reader, printed, or viewed on the web. And there are quite a few configs from which to choose. Regardless of what you choose, my prayer is that you honor God in all you do.
Secondly, I’ve been recording my coffee roasts in an old notebook. It was one my grandfather got from where he worked – in the coal mine operations. I don’t know the original purpose, but they work well. My roasting tonight will mark the commencement of the 3rd year of roast records contained in the notebook. It won’t make it through 2008, but it’ll go a little ways in.
May your new year be a blessed one!
Solo Deo Gloria,
