Happy New Year and Merry Christmas Season. By our calculations, those of you who are practicing the 12 days of Christmas should now have 14 turtle doves, 21 French hens, 35 golden rings, 42 laying geese, 49 swimming swans — and a partridge in a pear tree. We presume you are now googling “home addition plans” for the coming milkers, dancers, pipers, leapers, and drummers.
During this first week of the new year, ReflectionsOnline will offer some recommendations of resources for your 2012 spiritual formation plan – online Bible studies, spiritual formation websites, blogs, apps for your smart phone and more. We invite you to check them out, take what you like, and leave the rest.
Our reflections for the year begin on Epiphany, January 6. Throughout the year, we’ll be posting reflections regularly with a special Lenten series beginning February 22, Ash Wednesday.
We will also, this year, offer some online studies, including a Bible study on 1 and 2 Corinthians, written by the Rev. Drs. John Lewis and Jane Patterson; and an online study of the Nicene Creed written by the Rev. Mike Marsh.
We invite to join our online community as you reflect on the spiritual journey to which God is calling you. Get it all automatically in your email inbox by signing up in the e-mail subscription block on the right.
