The survey will be updated when I get home tonight. I can’t access the counts here at school since I need my computer for it. (Currently, I’m at work.) The answers have been really interesting and I’ve appreciated the results from the non-Christians that I’ve asked as their input is vital to what I’m using for my paper.
I finally got my replacement copy of Daily Texts from Mt. Carmel Ministries. It was $10 to replace it but it is *WELL* worth the money. For those who want something devotional but short, might I recommend it? I also recommend Our Daily Bread and Campus Journal. I like Daily Texts because it gives you an Old and New Testament verse for the day and a prayer. During my quiet times, I do like to read a larger chunk of Scripture but it’s nice to have the two meditation verses and then a prayer to base everything else around.
In Ministry of Worship, we watched a video on the Taizé community which was really good and we talked about daily prayer. I think it’s a worthwhile discipline and though I wish we weren’t doing the discussion out of the Presbyterian book (since it’s full of inclusive language which is, in my humble opinion, evil), it was good to discuss it. As a pastor, I think I will talk about the importance of quiet times with God in our daily lives but I’ll be judicious in how I push it.
