All AbOOOOOOARD!

I am beginning the Bible in 90 Days on Wednesday. I will be leading the class at my church (assuming anyone has signed up) AND I will be doing it with a small group of women online. You don't really need anything but a Bible to join us (though a participant's guide would be helpful.) I have already sent out the first e-mail to the women who want to do this. If you didn't get it and you should have, or want to, please let me know.

Why would anyone want to do this, you ask?

That's a good question. Here are some reasons.

1. Because you are more likely to finish it if you make a 90 day commitment than if you make a 1 year commitment. Lots of people start a plan for reading the Bible in one year, but how many actually finish?

2. Because you get the "big picture." When you read the Bible in a shorter period of time, you see themes from book to book that you would likely not otherwise catch. Leviticus parallels Hebrews, Daniel parallels Revelation. When the details are fresh in your mind, you are less likely to miss those things.

3. Because you are more likely to succeed at reading the entire Bible if you do it with a group.

I am very excited to start. I know God blesses those who read His Word. I am expecting a blessing.

Come join us!

(Thanks to everyone who came over here from Boomama's. And thanks to Boomama for the link. Our group is growing! If you want to join, please leave your e-mail address in the comments section! In order for me to contact everyone and also begin on time, I am going to close these comments at 11:00 pm EST, Monday Jan. 8. At that time no more additions will be made to our study group. Thanks for stopping by!)

I'm onboard. Thanks for the heads-up. (I've since added my email address to my profile. Glad you said something.) If you could forward me the necessary email, I'd appreciate it. I'm excited. My last attempt to do the 90 days faltered, so hopefully some accountability will get me through it this time. Glad you're doing this.

Lori, send me the emails necessary to keep up with the study as they become relevant(sp?).
I'm going to give it a try.

Although I thing this is a great idea, I can't commit right now. I am doing the Pentateuch study with CBS and can't even read Genesis and Exodus in 90 days. Just kidding. I have and it has been wonderful. I will check back to see how this study is going for you guys/ladies. You will be in my prayers.
