My Memory Moleskine: Wash, Rinse, Repeat…

Memory Moleskine - Image by Tim Brister

For the last several months, a few thousand people have been working to memorize the book of Philippians as part of the Partnering to Remember project started by Pastor Tim Brister. Now that the formal part is over, one of the biggest challenges I’ve found is making time to actually practice going through the whole book. I usually try to get through even a chapter a day in the morning, but with little kids who seem to know just when not to wake up, I rarely seem to get through it. I try to make up for it by working on it a bit in the car on the way to the office (or my office away from the office [read: Starbucks]) and on the way home, but… sometimes the day just gets in the way.

But I’ve not given up. I’m committed to not letting the last four months of work go to waste because it’s probably been the best use of my private worship time so far in 2011.

Now what about you? Are you in the “wash, rinse, repeat” phase of memorizing Philippians? If so, how are you keeping on track?

    I confess that I thought about doing the “PtR” stuff at the beginning of the year, but decided against it for a number of reasons. But I am tempted to give it a go towards the end of the year.

      Give it a shot, Ben. Or wait until the beginning of the new year and see what the next book Tim goes with will be :)

    I’m in the “wash, rinse, repeat” phase also. (It’s also been the best use of my private worship time as well!) I’m trying to use my “quiet times” (driving to/from work, walking the dog in the morning/night, etc.) to make sure I get through each chapter once.

    After finally reaching the end my friend who partnered with me suggested we get together every few weeks just to go through all four chapters again. Knowing I have to say them again in the future motivates me to review. Partnering has been the best help!
