E100 Bible Reading Challenge

.
We are thinking of promoting this within Westchurch.
"... the E100 Bible Reading Challenge [is] a flexible resource to help people get into reading their Bibles.

One of the key reasons why Christians don't read the Bible is that they find it difficult to understand.* The E100 Bible Reading Challenge features 100 carefully selected readings (50 Old Testament, 50 New Testament) designed to give people a good understanding of the overall Bible story from Genesis to Revelation. The E stands for essential and each of the essential 100 readings ranges from a few verses to a few chapters.
Through completing the challenge, participants are encouraged to build a regular habit of spending time with God through Bible reading and prayer.

PERSONAL CHALLENGE
- At its heart, E100 is a personal challenge. E100 is not easy - it's not meant to be. Bible reading is a discipline, something we need to be committed to.

Churches and participants can take the challenge in a way that suits them. It doesn't have to take 100 days - it's entirely up to the individual."

Check out the video that not only tells you more about E100 but also features some folk of Hamish's new parish at Hornby taking the challenge.
