  • Given your interest in the church calendar, etc., I thought you might be interested to know that Larry Wall's wife Gloria has a Bible reading schedule [wall.org] based on the Revised Common Lectionary. Now, my church doesn't use a lectionary, so I've never personally used this schedule, and this lectionary is from a consortium of Protestant churches, so you might not be interested, but I thought I'd mention it.

    I wonder if religious geeks like to do Bible reading schedules. :)

      I certainly do... for the first couple days anyway. :-) Then all those "look! a shiny!" jokes start to hit a little close to home.

      The best advice I ever recieved was when someone pointed out to me that there are 31 chapters in Proverbs, i.e. one per day of the month.

      The Proverbs have done a lot for me; the monthly iteration has helped get them into my self. And I actually do the reading (well, I do it often, anyway). That never happened with more ambitious reading schedules.

      Occasionally I'll hit the Psalms as well, (similiar algorith: eg. 4th day of month = Ps 4,34,64,94,124). But only if I've set aside extra time over lunch or something.

      • I followed the Proverbs schedule for a little over 2 years, and it was great. I discontinued to make room for other reading, but I intend to put it back some day.

        At the same time I also followed a Psalm per day schedule. I often got behind on this, but I always seemed to manage to catch up. I think I benefitted a lot from both of these plans. (And hitting Psalm 119 every 150 days was always a memorable event. :) )

        One more I'll throw out that I have done at other times: Revelation 2-3 consists of sev
