Happy New Year!

November 30, 2013 Leave a comment

Tomorrow marks the first day of Advent and the first day of the church calendar year.

Coincidentally, I also finished year 6 of the Nine Year Bible plan tonight, so I’ll be starting year 7 of 9 tomorrow with a study of the book of James.

It looks like I’ve done a chapter-by-chapter analysis and reading of the vast majority of the New Testament. The last three years of this sequence appear to have more topical and character studies, particularly more 1-week topics.

I’m excited that I’m coming up on the last third of this 9-year experience. So many things have changed since December 2007!

New Year’s Eve

Advent is the New Year of the church liturgical calendar.

Don’t think I’ll stay up until midnight. But I did go out to buy candles for the Advent wreath.

Happy New Year!
