Our 2014 recommendation for a daily Bible reading plan

notas-bibliaIn years past, we’ve published a yearly schedule of Bible readings in PDF format.

So we recommend it to you. The link goes to a TFR post where we mentioned it some time back.

The Forthright.net site was done for a couple of days, but it’s back up and running today.

We’re going to be revamping the FPress site before long. If you have any ideas of what you’d like to see on it, send us a line.

Extra note: The Fellowship Room is really taking off nicely. Come visit and stay around.

One of our Fellows on TFR sends out a daily meditation. Today I interspersed my reflections in the Bible verse he sent out.
