". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Catechism Widget

Hat tip to the Concordian Sisters* for pointing me to the Luther's Small Catechism widget that is now ensconced in my sidebar (right above "Music, Worship & Liturgy"). What a great find! I have set mine to change weekly rather than daily because I intend to use it for my own personal catechism memory work. Having been confirmed Roman Catholic, not Lutheran, I did not have the joy that my children now have of being required to memorize the catechism (and I mean that sincerely, not ironically). In our daily devotions, my husband (as his alter ego, "Catechism Bob") leads us in catechism study and memory, but my aging, overstuffed brain is constantly throwing up roadblocks to success. Maybe this little widget will help me in my quest to keep up with my children. Want to join me on the journey?

*If you've never checked out these ladies, you're in for a treat. I would give anything to write like them. They put words together better than just about anyone out there.

Since you said that you didn't learn this growing up, I'm wondering if you noticed that the translation of the catechism is NOT the one your kids are learning?

Well, shoot. I suspected as much but hadn't gotten around to verifying it yet.

I learned the awkward '86 version, so I'm always off anyway. Thank you for your kind words, Cheryl. :)
