February 3 & Daily notes & readings

DAY 34

Have you ever attended a class or participated in a presentation where the speaker simply read directly from a script? That's not always bad, but they've also given you the script!  So, you're reading what they're reading and nothing new is coming out of it.  That's not a class I want to attend.

I feel like today's reading could be like that.  I don't have much to add to what's being said about leprous purification rituals and what to do when a man or woman has bodily discharge.

Here's a better idea for today.  You read it and let me know what you have questions about.  If this passage is new to you, there are no bad questions.  If you're reading it again, how do make sense of what these rituals mean?

Your turn!

January 10 + Daily Notes & Readings

DAY 10 Family quarrels, rape and violence.  No, those aren't just words you'll find in today's news.  They're a part of today's Bible reading.  
We're getting into the last 1/3 of the book of Genesis.  Have you thought how you might sum up what happens in this book?  What does it all mean to the story of God?  As strange (maybe confusing) as some of it may be, why is it a part of our holy scripture?  
These are the kinds of question to ask yourself as you study and read the Bible.  You'll be joining a thousands-year-old conversation.   DAILY READINGSGenesis 32-34 & Psalm 10 DAILY NOTES Genesis 32:1-6
God sent messengers (angels) to Jacob. Jacob sent messengers to Esau.Jacob's message to Esau seems to be something like, "I haven't had it all good, but here are some things I have for you. Don't be mad."The messengers do not give any indication of Esau's attitude.   Genesis 32:7-12 It's been said that Jacob prepared for three t…
