Hi [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

Here's a thought, a quote, and a resource I wanted to share with you this Thursday.
A THOUGHT

Someone said that the secret to J.I. Packer’s life is that he “lived slowly enough to think deeply about God.”

That’s attractive.

I’m finding myself rushed even in lockdown. But some of the best things only come as we slow down enough to receive them.
A QUOTE

Singing.
Handshakes.
Laughing.
Hugs.
Family.
Friends.
People.

Have you noticed how
everything we want back
has nothing to do with
‘things’?

(Charlie Lyons)
A RESOURCE

I try to read the Bible at least once a year, but this approach doesn’t work for everyone. My wife, for instance, likes to go slower and deeper. Both approaches have strengths and weaknesses.

I know a lot of resources that cover how to read the Bible in a year or two, but I don’t know many that deal with how to read it slowly. A new book called How to Eat Your Bible helps to solve that problem. It gives a seven-year reading plan (!) that allows you to read the Old Testament 15 times and the New Testament 30 times over the course of 7 years.

If you are interested in going slower and deeper in your Bible reading, it’s worth checking out.
Thanks for reading!
