30 Days With Jesus

Photo by llimllib Today at Sunday School, we started our new series on Encountering God.  The series focuses on spiritual disciplines, part of an annual emphasis on the topic of habits for spiritual growth.  This year we are spending one week on each of the following:

  • Time in God’s Word
  • Giving
  • Prayer

Mark Driscoll has a great post that summarizes this discipline.  In an effort to make the study more “hands on” this year, we’ve issued a challenge to the kids to spend 30 days with Jesus.  There are 30 days between today and Easter, not counting Sundays.  So each day, students will be reading a story about Jesus.  You can follow along if you’d like.  (This chart [and others] comes from Zondervan; our version just adds the dates we’re reading it.)

Each Sunday, we’ll check in with the youth to see how its going and what they’re learning.  You may also be interested in a series I wrote a while back about reading the Bible.
