Acts: The Revolution... Starts on Sunday.

Winter blurs into spring; projects blur into each other. And blogs sometimes fall silent while we trace the trail assigned us. (Texas and Minnesota being the destinations in the last 7 days.)
But always there are those moments in between...when we remember what's really important.

Into the midst of our overflowing life, Tasha brought back from the most recent trip an idea destined to radically change our summer... Exactly how it was born, I know not. But a friend (and fellow GYC ECOM member) from Canada had something to do with it, and now the 5 of us are getting geared up for a challenge. :)

In the simplest terms,

The book of Acts:
28 chapters
1,007 verses
24,308 words

in 300 days.

And not just because GYC 2012 is going to be all about the book of Acts.
Because we want to enter in to the life of Acts.
Since after all, the book is still being written.

So here's the big question: 

You want to join us?
Yes, you.

Consider it an investment in your mind. An investment in your spiritual life...
Three verses a day isn't really that many, but only the absolutely determined will actually pull it off. And it will take more than 10 minutes a day. But what if it changed your life forever?

You don't think you can. 
I know you can. You should. And we'd love to cheer you on. (and hear you cheer for us!) :)

So here's the plan: 

1: Subscribe to our memorization and review schedules with any calendar application (iCal, iPhone/pad/pod, Android, Google Calendar, Outlook, etc) using the subscription links below.

OR:
Download and import these two .ics files (calendar will be static however, and won't update if we change or adjust anything) (click the link, and on the page right click file and select "download") 

2: Just a suggestion... Get yourself an audio bible so you can listen at least an hour a day... to the chapter you're working on, plus ahead and behind.

3: Let us know you're with us!

GYC, here we come. :)

p.s. If you can't keep up the pace, or if you're reading this post late and we've already started, no worries! Take it at your own pace, or jump in in the middle... So what if you only have half the book memorized by December! You'll never be sorry. 


p.p.s. Hint #1:
You'll notice the memorization assignments fluctuate between 2 verses and 5. Three verses a day is the average. The daily dose is split by logical thought breaks, not by number of verses. But no worries, until the second half of Acts, 30% of the days have no new memorization assignments at all. They are just for just review. So if you can't seem to grasp 5 new verses in a day, do three. There are review days coming. Just check the schedule to make sure you're roughly on track. :)
Hint #2:
If you're jumping in in the middle, or you get way behind, skip a chapter and get back on schedule. (or ahead) Nobody said you couldn't come back to something. Your morale will stay higher if you don't feel like you're always trying to catch up. :)
