Bible Reading Plan

For the next 3 months, leading up to Easter, we invite you to a personal journey through the Gospel of Luke.  There is a short reading each day Monday through Friday, with Saturday as a catch up day or day of rest.

How it works.

Set aside 15 minutes a day to read the short passage, and more importantly, to process it.  The goal isn’t for you to get through the Gospel of Luke but for the Gospel of Luke to get through to you!  Why did God include this Scripture, and what is he wanting to communicate to you?  That is what we want to discover.  To help you get the most from your readings, we suggest you get a journal, a notebook, or open a document on your computer, tablet of phone so you can jot out your thoughts.  If you’re new to this, consider using the BITE method
