Yearly Beloved Podcast Begins

 

Dearly beloved,

Welcome to my latest spiritual exercise–“Yearly Beloved.”

In an effort to become more prayerful, I am starting a new project— to broadcast a meditation for each day of the Orthodox calendar. Sometimes I will reflect on the Scripture reading for the day, sometimes on the feast day, sometimes even on the life of the saint(s) for that day. As a daily meditative exercise, this will force me to read the Scriptures and start the day with the Word. After prayer, and the help of the Holy Spirit, hopefully, I will be able to give personal insights into what that holiday, that saint, that Scripture means for me. It will be a way to test my consistency, an effort in self-discipline. I am not a theologian, a scholar; I have not had any training in exegesis. I am only a laywoman, a sinner, an everyday mortal. If I miss a day, forgive me from today. I probably will not be able to keep my commitment. I am human and will fail; but I will get back on track. That’s the important thing.

If you find you are helped this podcast, please consider subscribing or emailing me via the contact link. Thanks for listening to “Yearly Beloved.”
