My buddy Soren has been doing some sermon planning for next year so I thought I'd share my loosely organized plan. There are 260 chapters in New Testament. There are 52 weeks in a year. That means we can read the entire NT in a year by reading one chapter daily every Monday thru Friday. My plan is to get the church to do this together in 2008. Each Sunday I will bring a message from somewhere within the 5 chapters read the previous week. For example: Matthew 1-5 & I preach from 4:1-11 on the temptation of Jesus. It's simple, straightforward and it encourages Bible reading. My challenge is rearranging the reading plan so we don't do the 4 gospels consecutively, but that is doable. Also, keeping it "fresh" will be imperative so I''ll try to build mini-series within the year long plan.
