We officially have 20+ people participating in the Summer Reading Challenge! We’re so pleased that you’ve signed up. We also suspect there may be more of you who are reading, too, but haven’t officially committed till you’ve gotten a few days or weeks under your belt. And that’s OK!
One insightful participant asked if we could dedicate a space for people to discuss the scripture they’re reading. We’ve decided to dedicate this post for that purpose. It’s not super fancy, but please consider this blog post your official spot for comments and discussion about the passages you’re reading throughout the entire challenge.
How do you discuss? Well, if you’re reading this via email, it means you should click on the title of this blog post. That takes you to the Gospel Blog website, where you can leave a comment. Bookmark this page so you can come back to it whenever you have something to say. Read other people’s thoughts and offer your own insights or questions.
If you want to keep up to date with the comments on this page, you can subscribe to them. That means you get an email whenever someone posts a new comment on the page. All you have to do is click the “Notify me of follow-up comments by email” and/or the “Notify me of new posts by email” checkboxes when you leave your first comment. These boxes appear at the bottom of the gray “Leave a Reply” box at the end of this post.
So, here are a few questions to get you readers started:
- Is this your first time reading the entire Bible? Your first time reading it cover to cover?
- This reading schedule is pretty rigorous! How are you fitting in 10+ chapters per day?
- What new thought, inspiration, or question occurred to you so far?
- How do you feel about the reading? Inspired, tired, frustrated, peaceful, confused?
- Have you seen any changes in your life since you’ve started the challenge?
We want to reiterate that you can join the Summer Reading Challenge anytime before it ends in August. Just email us at TCOJCblog@gmail.com and let us know you’re participating. Remember, we’ll give away random prizes to participants at the end — but the real rewards come along the journey.
If you haven’t downloaded it already, here’s a PDF of the entire reading schedule.
