Reflections on a Wandering Life.....

Friday, February 22, 2013

Caught the morning sun as I was walking home from the village Bible study this morning. House churches throughout China have a custom of meeting for prayer and Bible study every morning at 5 am. It varies from place to place a little, I guess, but it is a pretty widespread practice. So when you are praying and studying the Bible with village believers at five in the morning, you can know that right that moment, thousands of other believers throughout China are about the same business. This practice is a good foundation for what needs to happen next, which is many, many Chinese young people going to the corners of the world. These meetings are not always that structured. They do tend to follow some kind of Bible reading schedule, though. We did a chapter from the Old Testament, a chapter from the New Testament, and then read a Psalm together.
