Start Here: Lenten Reading Challenge Outline

Following the chart below, you (yes you!) can read the entire New Testament during Lent. 20-30 minutes a day, six days a week. This challenge is being co-sponsored by Calvary UMC in Wichita, KS and Campus Ministry at Wichita State. All are welcome to participate. Blog entries developed by Rev. Christopher Eshelman. We’ll follow a chronological order as suggested by the late Marcus Borg in his book “Evolution of the Word.” I think you’ll find it opens the Scriptures in a way you’ll find most helpful and insightful. We start Ash Wednesday! Watch this space for some introductory material and then starting Ash Wednesday, February 18th, 2015 there will be daily reminders, encouragement and insight posted through Easter. Blessings on your journey!
