the Protestant doctrine of the priesthood of all believers

It is 8:57 AM Wednesday morning in the ice flow. This morning it is bitterly cold outside and gray. Maybe someday we will see sunshine once again. One can always hope.

I got up this morning around 7 o'clock AM. My wife was already up when I got up. I have had a typical morning. I wrote in my paper diary and fed our birds. I messed with our main computer and ate breakfast. I got out these two books to look at this morning.

"Reading Scripture With The Reformers" by Timothy George

"Acts" New Testament VI Reformation Commentary On Scripture Edited By Esther Chung-Kim & Todd R. Hains

Last night I watched television and went to bed around 11 o'clock PM. I do not know when my wife came to bed.

So it is another day. I plan to do nothing today. Carol is trying to get something going. My wife does not like to sit around and just be. I am not into doing anything. I am waiting it out.

There is nothing pressing on my mind this morning. Well I suppose I will close to drift. Yesterday I mainly read "Reading Scripture With The Reformers" by Timothy George and "Acts" New Testament VI Reformation Commentary On Scripture. I can't recall right now if I read anything else yesterday. I do remember looking at a lot of books in my library but not reading them. I did not go anywhere yesterday. Well I will close to wait it out.

"[1] Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,
[2] As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:
[3] If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.
[4] To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,
[5] Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
[6] Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
[7] Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
[8] And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed." 1 Peter 2:1-8
