100 Days

This Sunday, our church is beginning a series that will last through the end of the year. We are going to be reading the Bible in 100 days.

Eric and I are very excited. It seems really doable. The study books that correspond with the program look like a wonderful resource also. What a wonderful way to immerse ourselves in God's word and really make it a part of our everyday lives.

I love the fact that our whole church is doing this together. But more than that, I love the fact that Eric and I are doing it together. We will be able to keep each other accountable and discuss as we go along.

Another point I love is that we (the church as a whole) will not be using a Bible book that was created to be read in 100 days. We are actually going to read the whole Bible, start to finish, in 100 days. I'm just thrilled with this whole adventure.

I know this is a plan that has been gaining popularity lately. And as much as I am thrilled, I'm a little hesitant also. This is a huge undertaking; I worry that I won't be able to follow-through to the end. So, for anyone that has done this, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

Wow Kate,
That is a huge undertaking! I am sure you can do it though, especially with accountability from Eric and the church.

Every year my husband and I and most others through our church read the Bible in one year. Usually we read 1 psalm or proverb and 2-3 chapters from another book alternating between old and new testament. It is wonderful and every year God shows us new things!

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
