Need an Online Bible Study? The Good Book Club picks up again on January 1 through Shrove Tuesday, February 16, with the Gospel of Mark. Since Mark is the gospel appointed for this lectionary year, you’ll have a chance to dive deep into the scripture through the Good Book Club and then spend time with Mark throughout 2021! We know you have a lot going on, so we wanted to make this year’s Good Book Club accessible and easy to participate. Along with partners from across the Episcopal Church, the Good Book Club offers daily podcasts of the readings and reflections, online book studies (live classes and pre-recorded), weekly preview emails, and different ways to participate via social media.
