Theonas on reading Scripture

Let no day pass by without reading–at a suitable time–some portion of the sacred lessons, allowing time for meditation.  And never cast off the practice of reading the sacred Scriptures; for nothing feeds the soul and enriches the mind as much as those sacred lessons do.

Theonas was Bishop of Alexandria, Egypt ca. 281-300.  This quote is from Everett Ferguson, Inheriting Wisdom, Readings for Today from Ancient Christian Writers. Peabody: Hendrickson, 2004, page 228.

  1. Hey Mac, Yeah, funny finding you on facebook also. Life is good for me. Just got married this year, so what could be better? Kids maybe, but not quite yet. 🙂 Hope you are doing well. Had no idea you were still in Nashville.
