Forward Movement has announced the Good Book Club, a church-wide program that invites all Episcopalians to read Luke and Acts during Lent-Easter 2018. Participants in the Good Book Club will begin reading Luke the Sunday before Lent, February 11, 2018, and finish up the Book of Acts on the Day of Pentecost, May 20, 2018.
The Good Book Club website (goodbookclub.org) lists the daily readings, as well as available resources to support people as they read the scriptures. Resources will be available in Spanish at ClubBiblico.org. The website also has a video invitation by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, and answers questions such as “Why Read the Bible?” and “Why Luke and Acts?”
