Reworking old series on devotional time

Spent no little time yesterday reworking an old series on spending an hour with God in devotional time. It suggests 12 movements centered mostly around the Word and prayer. One class or chapter had no text (where could it have gone?), so I wrote up probably the best and fullest information of all the chapters. I had saved the series in a new file, reformatted it, made not a few typo and other corrections, and redid the scripture citations (removing parentheses and such). I also standardized book citations and created a bibliography at the back. Now to go back through it and beef up the other chapters.

Maybe I’ll print up a few copies and offer it in digital format. Dunno.

7P: Two types of reading

  1. Finally, a quite good hot chocolate mix, homemade, for the lactose intolerant. Don’t ask me for the recipe, it was a gift to DD.

  2. Some reading inspires thoughts to be jotted down and pursued; other reading captivates the mind and refuses to let go.

  3. Suddenly, book reviews and recommendations are surfacing that makes me want to invest again. Just as I’m paring down my volumes in preparation for my office move.

  4. A day behind on the Romans postings to one of the Portuguese sites, but the one for tomorrow is ready to go. Now, to do one for Thursday, because there’ll be no time, since our day flight starts early.

  5. Was surprised to discover how many times joy and happiness are mentioned in the book of Romans.

  6. An original verse: Beneath the surface lies the truest treasure, / Reached by severest effort without measure.

  7. A Bible verse: “He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left” Matthew 25.33.

Another book delivered to printer

Just finished delivering the back cover of Jon Gary Williams’s book, on how to study the Bible, in Portuguese to the printer. That’s done. This run will be relatively small, for the seminar on how to study and apply the Bible, for Saturday of next week. It still needs some revision, but I wanted to have this to put in people’s hands at the event, since it’s what I’ll be using for part of the day. So we’ll do a second edition down the road a bit.
