  • Recite or sing/chant Psalms 130 and 131 (I suggest you memorize these two Psalms)

    • Morning: Psalm 31

 Practice

 Try to take an extended time this week to sit down and read through the entire book of Mark in one-three sittings. Read it like you would read through any other book. Try to get a “feel” for the overall point of the book and the structure.

 Ask yourself the following questions (and ask these questions during your daily readings):

            -What resonates with me in this book (or individual text)?

            -What confuses or bothers me?

            -What draws me to this person, Jesus?

            -What confuses, bothers, or frightens me about this person, Jesus?

            -What does this person, Jesus seem to be calling me to do? To be?
