My "old soul" has similar needs. I love tradition, I love liturgy, I love acting out how I feel about my Lord in worship and in life.

Curious little book written by a woman who converted from Judaism to Christianity, yet she relates how Jewish acts may be applied to the Christian life. She explains how truly understanding the basics will enrich our relationship with the Lord.
I'll be sure to update what I'm learning from this book. It's really been fascinating so far!
I may even have to re-read it when I'm through. That's how good it is.
I mean, the highlighter has come out. Seriously!

Baby steps... baby steps...
