pastor ed's reading challenge

Pastor Ed issued a challenge to all college students: make good use of your time this break by filling your mind with good books! Pastor Ed's top suggestions:

  1. Read through the entire Bible! It's totally doable!*
  2. Read a bunch of C.S. Lewis. Pastor Ed specifically mentioned Mere ChristianityThe Problem of Pain, and Miracles. If those are too intimidating, start with The Screwtape Letters.
