a.)    I haven’t even started, but I want to start.
b.)   I have started, but am way behind…I haven’t even read the Gospel of Mark.
c.)   I have completed the December section, but am starting to fall behind with Month 2.
d.)  I’m a little behind, but could use some help to catch up.
e.)   I’m pretty much on schedule. Here’s how I did it…
f.)    I’m ahead of schedule. Here are my tips...
g.)   I think I give up!

Having trouble dividing the readings?  Here's a schedule of the Mount 27 readings planned by day for the months of January and February!

Special thanks to Eranga DeSilva for making this schedule!

I just began to pray with scripture this year, but I mosey along by reflecting on one or two parables a month. Mount 27 is giving me a chance to see everything the New Testament has to offer, and it still engages me and draws me in because of the pace, I keep writing in "Why, why why," in the margins. Scripture is the most interactive literature out there, and now I'm just scraping the surface. It clearly will be something I will be reading throughout my life.

Friends, sometimes you may be behind the schedule… but please do not give up! I was about 5 days behind and gradually caught up and I'm glad that I did not give up. Let’s run the race together!

“Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, 
because we know that suffering produces perseverance;
perseverance, character; and character, hope.”
Romans 5:3-4
