This daily post is designed to help you live into our New Room Society covenant of practicing daily prayer together. Below is today’s daily practice. If you missed the overview on day one, visit Week 20: Simplicity.
Monday: The Author of Confusion
“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as we see in all the Churches of the Saints.” 1 Corinthians 14:33, 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
The Catechism of the Catholic Church says: “Idolatry consists in divinizing what is not God. Man commits idolatry whenever he honors and reveres a creature in place of God, whether this be gods or demons, power, pleasure, race, ancestors, the state, money, etc.” (2113)
Open a conversation with a new church leader about idolatry. How is idolatry related to this week’s theme of simplicity? Where does idolatry exist in its strongest or most subtle forms in our society?
