90 Day Bible Challenge
 Week 2


The first week of our challenge took us through some stories that challenged us to find the meaning for today in the Creation, the Fall, the Flood, the Tower of Babel. This week we begin to follow the history of the Patriarchs (Fathers) in the faith. Did you miss some readings last week? No guilt! Just pick up right here and don't worry--you can always go back and read those stories later. 

Each reading takes about 5 minutes to read. We also encourage you to take time to think about each reading, pray on it, and discover what God might be revealing to you in it.  Here are some questions to help you get started: 
What is God saying to me in this passage?
What is challenging?
What is encouraging?
How can this word guide me today?

 
Want to discuss the readings? Join in the discussion at Faith in :45 after worship or visit the Living Christ Facebook page and join the discussion there.
