Driven To Tears

I am usually not too emotional about things, though I can be. This morning I was wiping some tears away not of sorrow but of incredible peace. In a conversation with my pastor, Dean Delfosse yesterday, he suggested that I listen to the podcast “Coram Deo, The Daily Liturgy.”  Coram Deo is a church in Omaha led by Bob Thune and they have been a great resource in Christ-centered teaching and ministry. Those who know me will affirm I am a lover of “dead theologians” and the writings of the Puritan era. I have for many years in my personal reading of the Scripture used the resource of the McCheyne reading plan.  Robert Murray McCheyne was a Scottish pastor in the 1800s who wanted to increase the Bible literacy of his congregations so he came up with a reading plan. It ends up in this podcast, they use a similar model of readings from several spots in the Bible daily, yet with common threads often times. In addition to readings from the Scriptures, the podcast interjects prayers and contemplation from resources such as “The Valley of Vision” and “The Book of Common Prayers” among others. The podcast was only 10 minutes but I felt like I had experienced a journey into a personal holy place. I’m hooked and recommend you give this a try too. It is available on all the media links to podcasts. Just 10 minutes but if it results in tears in your eyes, I do not recommend you listen to it while driving. 🙂
