Summer Reading about Music and Worship: CPH Reads

It’s summer! Even musicians can benefit from taking a break, sitting down with a book, and escaping into a story or learning something new. Concordia Publishing House’s summer reading program, CPH Reads, is in full swing. This is a program for adults and children that allows you to select a reading plan, track your progress by earning points, and celebrate your success by being entered to win a grand prize.

2017 Lenten Reading Plan

When I was in high school, I learned about the practice of giving something up for the Lenten season. Lately, I’ve picked up the practice of giving up time—by reading something in forty days that will take some dedication and sacrifice.

To help you with this process, we’ve developed a downloadable reading guide with hymn suggestions for each day in Lent.
