The 2017 Reading Challenge

reading-2017     To move us deeper into the Word, Pat gives us a reading challenge each year.  For 2017, he has chosen The One Year Book of Psalms.  This is a daily devotional with accompanying meditations, quotes, fascinating facts, and topical “interludes.”  If you would like to accept the challenge and order a book ($12 each), reserve your copy with “X” on your Connection Card.
