One of the goals of the Brothers of John the Steadfast is the creation of reading groups whose intention is to get with a Pastor and read through the Book of Concord. For those people who do not have access to a reading group, it occurred to us that we might try creating an “online reading group” right here on the BJS site. Sorry this posting is late! Hopefully you can catch up on it.
Pastors reading this — please take the time to reply to any questions brought up on this list, or even comment yourselves on what this section of the BOC means to you.
Each Sunday we will post the readings for the week, broken down into daily readings. Read through the passages yourselves, either using your copy of the Concordia or using the BookofConcord.org website.
For Dec 8th through Dec 12th we are in week 50 in 2008, so according to the 2nd edition of Concordia, nearing the end of the Solid Declaration of the Formula of Concord.
Monday SD Article VIII paragraphs 76-86.
Tuesday SD Article VIII paragraphs 87-IX paragraph 3.

Friday SD Article X paragraphs 26-XI 3.
Write any questions or comments on the readings for the week below. Please try to keep discussion limited to the readings for this week or topics that grow out of them. Remember, no question is a stupid question, and insights you see clearly may not be evident to others, so write about anything you want regarding these readings!
