read the Easter story

Last year, in an effort to read all of the Gospel accounts of the Easter story in the week leading up to Easter, I created this reading schedule, beginning on the Monday after Palm Sunday and ending on Easter Sunday. I hope it is helpful to immerse yourself in The Story. Easter Sunday Morning is that much more amazing after taking the time to read each day. May you see it with fresh eyes--the most important Story in the history of the world (and that is not an exaggeration).
