+JMJ+ Two things for tonight: first, a note about the virtual Catholic Bible conference that starts tomorrow. I registered already and then ran over here to tell you about it. Looks really interesting and I’m excited about it. Second, I’ve been working on a blog plan for the year and I’m looking forward to that, too.
There will be lots of free content at the Catholic Bible conference, I think, and a premium tier gets you continuing access to the content with downloadables and such. That’s what I need, something I can access way after the thing is over because I can hardly ever sit down and pay attention while these things are actually happening. More about the Take and Read: A Journey Into the Bible and a video below.
“Want to get more out of the Bible as a Catholic, but don’t know where to start We’re giving Catholics simple and practical tools to break open the Bible and hear God’s unique message, just for them. Reading the Bible can seem like daunting task for many Catholic. But with just a few simple insights and skills you can discover the exciting truth that this Word is alive, and you’ll never look at Scripture the same way again.”Take and Read: A Journey into the Bible, a virtual Catholic conference.
This was really Providence in action. I’ve been pondering a plan for the blog. Well, as much of a plan as I can make and stick to since I’m more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal. (Read: I have no idea what I’m doing, but here I am, doing it anyway.) Early this morning (note: I wasn’t up early, I was up LATE) I got the idea to keep the two posts a week schedule (for now) and do some short series this year of maybe ten parts each at most, not fifty (I’m looking at you, Weekly Series on the Soul) or thirty-ish (I’m looking at you, Something About Mary Every Day in May). I’m thinking of doing a series (or two or a few) about the Bible on Thursdays and about the Church and Catholicism on Mondays. The first Monday of every month will still focus on the Re-Reading the New Age series.
And here’s where Providence stepped in:
I had just decided to focus on the Bible this year, when what to my wondering eye did appear, but an email about a conference I could attend here and presented by Catholic teachers without peer!
Well, the rhythm leaves something to be desired, but this conference looks to be all I could hope for and more. I hope you’ll be there, too.
Thank you for visiting and reading. I hope you’ll join me again here at Catholic Heart and Mind, and at the Take and Read: Journey Into the Bible conference, too. Until next time, whoever and wherever you are, please stay safe and well, virtuous and holy. May the Lord bless and keep you and yours, and may His peace be always with you. +JMJ+
