…from glory to glory

Where my treasure is…

…thinking and meditating upon the Scripture, traditions, and the Spirit of God in the Autumn Holydays. October 4 marked the climax of the ten Days of Awe and Remembrance which began on The Feast of Trumpets, September 24 at sundown. The Feast of Trumpets is the Biblical name for what has become popularly knowntrumpets stained glass 3 as Rosh Hashanah or The Jewish New Year. The 10th Day of Awe is The Day of Atonement…

I will not elaborate on any of these here. My meditations on these things have saturated all other musings for the days remaining in this Autumn Holyday season; and so, the meditations of my heart and the words which usher forth in the days ahead will be focused on this best of treasures…

…for encouragement for the hungry hearted in times like these, for praise to the God who has loved me from eternity past, and for testimony of the LIFE of Messiah Jesus changing mine from glory to glory…

Listen to the sound of the shofar (ram’s horn/trumpet):

The Powerful Sound of the Shofar

The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because…[Yeshua] is nearer now than when we first believed.

–Romans 13.11

Almighty and everlasting God, You are always more ready to hear than we to pray, and to give more than we either desire or deserve: Pour upon us the abundance of Your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid, and giving us those good things for which we  are not worthy to ask, except through the merits and mediation of Messiah Jesus* our Savior; who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever**. Amen.

–from the Book of Common Prayer, p. 234, Proper 22 (*Jesus Christ; **for ever and ever)
