Day 81

Day 81 Reading – Deuteronomy Chapters 32-34 and Psalm 91

Listen, you heavens, and I will speak; hear, you earth, the words of my mouth. Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants. I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.   Deuteronomy 32:1-4 NIV

Moses finishes delivering his speech about the Law (Deuteronomy) and then breaks out in song.

Perhaps this was the first use of music for a call to respond.

That would predate John and Charles Wesley by several thousand years!

Oh, and when the song was over, Moses delivered a blessing – that is sort of like a benediction.

Who knew we were developing a concept for worship while in the wilderness?

Way to go Moses!


Day 82 Reading – Joshua Chapters 1-4


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
