It’s the first day of October. By coincidence (maybe) I have also begun a New Testament reading plan that will challenge me to read the New Testament by the end of the month. I’ve done this plan before, and have found that there is great value in reading through books of the New Testament in large chunks like this.

As I began, I realized that this might be something others at New Hope would be interested in doing as well, so here’s the challenge. Below are the readings for each day. It’s a 30 day plan and there are 31 days in October so you get one day off if you want of finish by November. When you’re reading in large chunks you read differently, so once you’re finished the reading reflect on one unique take away from that day’s chapter. Maybe it’s a theme you noticed, or something that stuck out to you.

That’s it. So I encourage you to participate and maybe talk to others who are doing it as well.
