We come up with a million excuses why we can’t do this or do that, but we find time, we make time to do the things we really want to do.
I want LiG to be a resource to help people spend 15-30 minutes every day reading scripture, or a devotional or an interesting book. Later you might want to watch some of the over 5,000 embedded lectures from Carnegie Mellon University, Dallas Theological Seminary, Harvard, Biola University, Vanderbilt University, Princeton Theological Seminary, Gordon–Conwell Theological Seminary, Catholic University, Edinburgh University, Yale and other leading universities around the world.
If you can make this small commitment you will discover at the end of the year that you have read the entire Bible, or a devotional, or a book or books and I know your walk with God will be strengthened.
In addition to reading the Bible every day, the Episcopal Church, Book of Common Prayer Lectionary, a two year read, is available every day. In July of 2016 I began to add the Catholic Lectionary. The 2009 Catholic Lectionary is a three year read. I will try to be faithful to this endeavor.
Other daily reads and devotionals include On This Day, 365 Amazing And Inspiring Stories About Saints, Martyrs And Heroes, My Utmost for His Highest, Take Heart: Daily Devotions with the Church's Great Preachers, American Minute, Where Do You Lean? (my compilation), and Proverbs. In 2013 I added two more Devotionals; Amazing Grace: 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions and Morning and Evening: A New Edition of the Classic Devotional Based on The Holy Bible, English Standard Version by Charles Spurgeon.
Other reading resources and their starting date include: The Imitation Of Christ starts February 1, The Journal and Major Essays of John Woolman February 10, Swimming In The Sea of Talmud, Lessons for Everyday Living by M. Katz and G. Schwartz on February 12, Andrew Murray's Absolute Surrender on March 17, 2014, P.T. Forsyth’s The Soul of Prayer on September 19, Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer by C.S. Lewis on October 28, The Eerdmans Dictionary of Early Judaism on April 3 and God Is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas November 20.
This site has become a daily rhythm in my life and though it represents, I have no idea how many hours of work, it is none the less a labor of love. It is important to me that I do not clutter this site with advertising. Links to books on Amazon are a service to the reader. If you feel inclined to donate your donations are much appreciated, but it will have to be a gift from the heart because I am not a 501.
