Day 43

Day 43 Reading – Exodus Chapters 39-40

Moses placed the table in the tent of meeting on the north side of the tabernacle outside the curtain and set out the bread on it before the LORD, as the LORD commanded him.  Exodus 40:22-23

I am amazed once again at the detail steps taken within the temple for worship.

God left nothing to guess work. Take the time to study more about the tabernacle and you will be amazed by the thoughtful detail and imagery that is still important today.

While you are at it, consider the formality of the worship described and prescribed.

Then ask yourself, “How does that play out in my life’s approach to worship?”

Have we become to casual in our approach to worship?

Do we pay enough attention to the traditions of the past in our haste to create worship that is contemporary in nature?

Perhaps we can still learn from the old and allow ancient wisdom to speak anew in our lives today.

Day 44 Reading – Leviticus 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.
