Fall Reading List and Life Journals

Fall Reading List and Life Journals

Each quarter we provide a scripture reading schedule to encourage the development of your personal spiritual formation. Below you will find this quarter’s schedule.  You can also download a hard copy here: Fall 2015 Daily Readings.

Starting this year we are going to alternate between the New Testament and Old Testament each quarter and read the Psalms in the summer. Over the next few years we will end up reading the entire Old Testament once, the New Testament twice and the Psalms twice.   We’ve intentionally chosen a slower pace so that we have time to really meditate and reflect on the text each day. This method also gives us regular re-entrance points each quarter if we happen to get out of rhythm.

Along with reading the text we’d encourage you to keep a journal of what you are learning. Here is a proposed process. It follows the acronym REAP:

Read: Read through the text slowly and write out a key phrase that stands out to you.
Examine: Write out an initial observation or question you have.
Apply: Write out how this text applies to your life.
Pray: Spend some time in conversation with God about what you have read.

This Fall we are doing the synoptic gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke:
