My son and I, as our Lenten practice, have selected to read a passage of Scripture every morning. We have settled on the book of Sirach (Ben Sira, Ecclesiasticus). It is, in my opinion, a worthy one for Protestants to reconsider. It is, somewhat, retained in the Anglican tradition via the lectionary and are supported for non-doctrinal teaching.
They should reconsider that.
Nevertheless, if you read the latter half of chapter 2, you’ll get this sense that God is actually…wait for it… love.
And full of Grace.
Do you teach the same thing?
