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!

-Eranga DeSilva, Seminarian at the Mount

“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

“I decided to participate in the Mount 27 because I knew it would challenge me to read/pray with Scripture, which is something I never really had done before.  Since I enjoy a challenge I decided now was the time for me to break the ice and start reading some Scripture.
RJ Dogal, MSM C’13

“I decided to participate in Mount 27 because I have always wanted to read Scripture more, but find that I often do not make the time. I feel that the accountability of participating will encourage me to read more often, more prayerfully, and more thoughtfully.”
Margaret Kenney, MSM C’13
