A New Year, A New Decade

So, here were are.  2010.  It’s hard to believe that it was 10 years ago already that we were ringing in the year 2000.  But anyway, enough waxing sentimental.  On to the resolutions!

This year, my church has encouraged us to take on a Mitzvot for the new year.  Rooted in Jewish traditions, a Mitzvot is a task one voluntarily undertakes in order to experience a spiritual change.   So here is my Mitzvot, my resolutions for the new year, all rolled into one.

  • Read the One Year Bible
  • Read one book per month
  • Listen to 1 sermon podcast per week (in addition to the sermon from my home church)
  • Run 3x per week (I’ve found running to be great prayer time)

The only one I’m a little nervous about is the running.  I love to run, but I haven’t been as disciplined as I should be about it.  I’ll keep you updated on how that goes.  Also, I’ll be updating the blog with reflections as I read through the Bible and read at least 12 other books this year too.

Happy New Year!
