Book Meme

Joanna tagged me for this meme. I was certain I'd already done it, so I had a chance to try out the Blog Bar searcher in the lefthand sidebar. Sure enough, there is it was in last May's archives. But the rules were a little different. And I like books, so I'll do it again.

Here are the rules this time around:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

It was nothing formal, but I was amazed at how calm everyone was, how I held their attention and they held mine, and how much we were enjoying this time.

After the first week, I further refined my concept."

That was page 123 of Real Learning, the book closest to my keyboard this morning (I took it out of a mailing envelope). It is taken from the chapter entitled "Religion: An Intimate Relationship with God." The chapter is the story of how we live the liturgy at home and this passage traces the beginning of our tea time tradition.

So, what's the book nearest to you this morning?
