As we get older, many of us think we can’t memorize as well as we used to. Maybe so. (Maybe not?)
But I know we can still memorize some. And the more we do it, the better we can stay at it (or at least slow down the losses?).
If you’d like to exercise your memory muscles this summer in a no-pressure way and for a cause more important than simply maintaining your memory—to stay more connected to Jesus; to better love those around you; to bear more fruit that lasts—sign up now to memorize John 15.
We start next Monday, June 2. We go slow and don’t aim for word-for-word perfection. We just want to abide, to stay strong in our belief that God is Love. Memorizing scripture is one way to do that, but only one of many ways. (It’s not for everybody–do what works for you!)
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
If you don’t want to memorize, but would still like to journal or pray through John 15 for a few months, you also can register to receive the every-other-week emails with the verses.
