“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”

I serve as a lector in my church, and from time to time I am asked to read a passage from the Old Testament or the Epistles. This Sunday I am to read the entire first chapter of the Old Testament Book of Amos. Is rather long and repetitious and contains promises of God’s destructive wrath against Israel’s and Judah’s neighbors.
I communicated with our church pastor and suggested that he might wish to provide pillows for the congregation.
