Read The Bible

Lectionary readings

It is still a good time to make (and keep) a resolution.

A twitter discussion recently about strategies for reading through the scriptures, routines involved when reading, and particular structures to reading, led me back to an approach I promoted 8 years ago.

My own focus is through the Daily Eucharistic Readings (also available through the Online Chapel on this site).

There is a three-year approach which links to the Christian Sunday three-year lectionary and also to the Jewish Sabbath reading. The daily reading is online here (for some of us, early after the dateline, it is a day behind).

The physical book is here:

The Bible Through the Seasons: A Three-Year Journey with the Bible by Nicholas Connolly.

To be continued tomorrow…
