Read it like a novel

I was recently challenged to participate in a group that was endeavoring to read the Bible through in 90 days. There is a program out there that divides the reading into about ninety even chunks that can each be read relatively easily in a sitting. Being fairly certain that I've read all of it at one time or another, I've never read the thing straight through as a single work. And who knows if perhaps I left a book or two out somewhere along the way. No telling what's in there I might have overlooked.

So our group kicked off this effort last Sunday with an informational meeting and pep rally to get everyone pumped up. I was surprised to see so many people at the starting line. The question now is, how many will scratch before reaching the finish? Of course it's not a competition, and I'm asking myself if I will be able to make it through to the end. 

In addition to reading, I'm also purposing to write a little response to the reading each day and post that here. Nothing heavy or really well thought out, simply my first response to the day's reading that I can type in just a couple of minutes. If you're interested, you can read that here, or subscribe to the RSS feed here. And if you want to read along, that would be cool too. I'd be happy to have a fellow traveler.

So Elaina has a newfound bedtime story and has sort of joined you in your Bible journey. She's reading the one you and Steph gave her for her Baptism. We've picked it up now and t hen before, but just read a story here and there. Now she wants to read the whole thing cover to cover. So we read about 3-4 stories every night, We started with the New TEstament because she was curious about Jesus' childhood. We finished that in short order, and we've been reading the Old Testament for about a week now. Its interesting through a child's eyes, too.
