Getting Started

Life in the Scriptures is an invitation to join millions of Christians around the world in daily prayer and Bible study.  The readings come from the Lectionary, or "Psalms and Lessons for the Christian Year" found in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, which makes the prayers and worship of the ancient Church available to Christians today.  Each day offers readings for morning and evening, consisting of selections from the Psalms and the Old and New Testaments.

This is a serious program of Bible reading, and it brings serious results.  I truly believe those who follow it for a year will learn much about the Bible and grow closer to God, and those who follow it for several years will be amazed at their growing maturity in the things of God.

The posts will include a short commentary on one of the readings for the day.  Posts will begin on March 9, 2011, Ash Wednesday.

Grace and peace.
