Staff project: memorizing Colossians

alt

As a spiritual exercise, the staff has challenged itself to memorize Colossians. All of it. Every single verse, word for word. What better way to "hide God's Word in our hearts" (Psalm 119:11) than to have it fully recollected in our memories?

To be perfectly honest, it's been both much harder than we imagined – you literally find yourself muttering Scripture in the shower, in line at the grocery market; it encompasses the whole day – and much more rewarding than we suspected. You begin to notice little details and connections. Suddenly grammar and syntax matters! You pay attention not just to the famous verses, but also to the surrounding context. And you notice even the littlest words and marvel at the meaning behind it. There are so many insights we'd love to share.

Next time, ask one of us – Becky, Christina, Michael, Nate, Tracy and Wade. We're memorizing 5 verses a week and we're currently near the end of Colossians 2. Only 2 more chapters to go!
