Alongside our continuing Sunday (& Life Group) series in Mark, why not try some or all of these options:

1. Read the whole of Mark’s Gospel.

Make yourself a cup of tea and do it in one or two sittings like you might any short book. It’ll probably only take round about an hour or so.

2. Read a little bit of Mark’s gospel every day for 30 days.

Just here on the website there is a reading plan to guide you in this using your own Bible; or there’s a document to download that divides the whole of the text of Mark’s gospel (The NET version – a good translation that is copyright free for us to use and reproduce) into those 30-day chunks, one a page. You can print it off or read it on a device. It’ll do you Monday-Saturday, 6 days a week for 5 weeks.

Even better than reading it into yourself (we often tend to skim over bits), there’s a great freshness in realising that Mark’s gospel was written to be read out loud and heard. So why not go a bit further…

  • Read it out loud when you read it each day (find a little private space if you feel awkward!)
  • Find an audio recording through a Bible App or online; but better yet…
  • Record yourself reading out loud and listen to it. By the end you’ll have your own recording of Mark’s gospel that you can listen to. Best yet…
  • Listen to each of the 30 sections of Mark’s gospel, read by someone different from SRPC (recorded last year when we were "together, apart".)

3. Talk about what you’ve read and heard in a Life Group.

We’ll be looking at Mark in Life Groups as the year gets further underway. If you’re not in one, join one and learn and pray and enjoy fellowship together with others. (contact Ben if you’d like to join a Life Group)
