Ambulans in itinere

"Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the way, when you lie down and when you get up."

God's startling revelation to Moses in Deuteronomy 6:4-7 -- "the Lord is one" -- still forms the heart of the Jewish faith; it is the heritage of the Christian.

From the beginning, God commanded his people to love Him and keep his commandments. He gave us his word so that we could learn about him and grow in our spiritual lives. But God also gives us both good and bad examples of how living our lives for him or for ourselves can affect both ourselves and others.

The name of this blog is the Latin for "walk along the way," from the passage quoted above. It is in the spirit of this command that I will endeavor to cite a passage of God's word and explore it in each entry.

I will follow the daily lectionary from the Book of Common Prayer, either choosing one of the lessons to focus on or exploring all three.

In keeping this blog I hope to (1) encourage my own spiritual development and (2) encourage other people's spiritual development through engagement with God's word.

Please feel free to let me know how I could improve on this blog, and feel free to post your own comments under each entry.

Pax vobiscum.
