My family and I recently spent a challenging week out of state in order for me to attend a Christian education training seminar.
It was 4 days and nights of intensive workshops, study, testing, and among other things, Bible recitation.
On top of long days, lots of homework, fighting a cold, and restless nights in a hotel bed, we were required to memorize this passage:
“Here, O Israel: the Lord our God is one Lord:
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
