Church Fathers Day 1: Didache

For Lent this year, I'm reading the Church Fathers, using a plan that has me reading 10-15 minutes a day, covering 10 Fathers during the 40 day period. I've never read the Church Fathers before and am looking forward to learning more about my Christian heritage through these readings. I'll be rambling here throughout the season with my thoughts about what I read. Since so much of this is new to me, I won't be surprised if I miss some things or get some things wrong. Feel free to correct me in the comments.

Today was Didache. The reading seems to be a general list of instructions teaching basic tenets of the faith. Most of the writing ties the teaching to the 10 Commandments. All in all, I found this to be a good introduction for the readings I'll be doing this season.
