Q & R: Using We Make the Road by Walking

Here’s the Q:

I’m thinking of leading a study on We Make the Road by Walking which I hope to start during Lent 2018. I have the book on Audible and at the end it states that there are resources available in a link on your web page that can be helpful in a study. I’ve checked it out and can’t find the link, so I would appreciate your help in locating it.

Here’s the R:

We switched platforms last year and still haven’t fixed all the links … thanks for your patience! First, here are downloads of the Commentary, Lectionary, and Lectionary with all the biblical texts arranged by chapter/week.

And here (below) is a reading plan that syncs up chapters with the church calendar for 2018. (The first number is the chapter number.) Lent begins February 14, so you would begin with Chapter 27 the following Sunday
