I just finished week twenty-eight of the (a.k.a. "Twitter Bible Study")! For any new followers, I am officially 53.7% of my way through a "chronological in which I am reading the entire Bible over the course of 2011. Since the beginning of the year, I have been enjoying both the challenge of actually keeping up my daily Bible reading as well as trying to gain insight from what I've read. I have been reading the daily verses as outlined in my reading plan for the past several weeks. Each day I post insight on the readings in 140 characters (or less!) to the DWC blog, as well as to my Twitter and Facebook accounts. The purpose of posting it on my blog is really so I can have a record somewhere, with tags for the books of the Bible so that I can easily go back and reference these little nuggets of "wisdom." Please feel free to read and comment if you like. Who knows, maybe some of my insights will be helpful to someone along the way.
Let me re-cap this week just in case you did not see the posts on my or page. I'll add links for the biblical reference so you don't even have to dig out your own Bible!
