Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent—and it’s also the first day of our Lent reading plan! The Lent reading plan walks you through each of the four Gospels during the Lent season in preparation for Easter. If you’ve been thinking about spending more time in Scripture during Lent, this is a great way to do it.
Each day’s reading is fairly short (average of 2-3 chapters per day), but over the course of Lent you’ll read the entire account of Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection. There’s a reading for each day of Lent except for Sundays, which you can use to reflect on the previous week’s reading (or get caught up if you’ve fallen behind).
Reading the plan is simple. Just go to the Lent reading plan page and start reading! Check that page each day; the daily reading updates automatically. (You might wish to bookmark that page in your browser to make it easy to return to each day—press Control-D while viewing the reading plan to do so.)
If you prefer to read the plan through RSS or an iCal calendar, use the links provided to the right of the daily reading.
We hope you’ll find the Lent reading plan useful. (Special thanks to Central Presbyterian Church of Baltimore for making it available.) It’s a good way to spend a bit of time each day focusing on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, and the readings are short enough that it isn’t too difficult of a time commitment. Enjoy the reading plan, and let us know if you have any questions about it!
