  • FROM ALPHA TO OMEGA IN A YEAR!
    Bishop Linda’s challenge:
    Let’s read the Bible in one year. Let’s read it every day!
    The Bible is at the heart of our faith, writes Bishop Linda in her message while challenging us to join her in an effort to read the entire biblical text in one year.
    “As we begin a new calendar year I pray that we will commit to reading the Bible − the whole Bible!”
    Join Bishop Linda in reading the Bible in ONE YEAR.
    Use THE BIBLE CHALLENGE as an outline:

    thebiblechallenge.org
    The website posts the scriptures daily and contains study guides for each book of the Bible.
