Apr. 23-30 - These days are deliberately left “open” for “free reading.” Use this week to catch up, if necessary or, if you’re current in your reading, use these days for review and reflection.
Monday, May 1 will mark the start of the third and final phase of the Know His Voice project, our church-wide reading in the Gospels. Having read the Gospels comprehensively (phase one) and in a comparative way (phase two), we’ll move into a categorical reading of the Gospels (phase three) with the readings grouped around a common subject or theme.
