Bishop Jane challenges all members of the diocese to read through the entire Bible by the end of our centennial year at Pentecost 2014. If TV producers can film the stories of the Bible in 10 episodes, surely we can read them in 365 days. Not convinced? Don’t worry, we have a plan. We are using a schedule developed by the Center for Biblical Studies(CBS). The CBS intentionally focuses on reading the entire Bible, reading the books of the Bible in sequence and ensuring that a psalm and a portion of the New Testament are read each day in order to provide strong spiritual sustenance. Let us begin this schedule on Monday May 20th, the day following our centennial celebration. Click here to download your copy of The Bible Challenge WORD / PDF
