Ramadan 'Project'

So for some reason I've decided to read the Qur'an during Ramadan. Shouldn't be too hard, right? It's not a very long book. I decided this last night and then got interrupted by Baby Sis before I could actually start reading. I'll start tonight and we'll see how it goes.

I'm kind of sorry we don't get HBO at my house. I saw a commercial for a documentary that they were playing last night about little kids who were competing in a Qur'an memorization competition. I think that would have been really interesting to watch. Ah well. Maybe it'll come on the Documentary channel or something later on.

And I've found a Bible study online at Ancient Faith Radio called 'Search the Scriptures'. I can download the lessons to my mp3 player and listen to them while I'm at the gym or whatever. I'm only up to lesson three and I only loaded the first seven, but I'm really enjoying it. The teacher, Dr. Jeannie Constantinou has a very engaging way of speaking and explaining things. I haven't actually gotten to any of the Bible lessons yet, she's still explaining who the Church Fathers are in Orthodoxy and base information like that.


  1. Sounds interesting! I'd love to read your thoughts on any of that (reading Quran, Bible studies) so do share if you feel so inclined during the month! :)

  2. The whole reading the Qur'an thing is not going well. I got two pages into it and was distracted by a shiny thing. One of the problems with listening to the podcasts of the Bible lessons is that it's hard to take notes because I'm on the bike or something. But I'm going to try and remember to go back and do posts of anything that sticks out to me. Speaking of which...

  3. distracted by shiny things...girl,you are too funny.

    Squirrel!! :)

    btw, I mentioned you in my latest post because apparently you made an impression on me with the alien talk recently. :)

    have a good day!

  4. I am easily distracted! :)

    *laughs* I saw that. Aliens are going to come back and re-enslave us! Run away!

  5. This is really interesting project, I would love to hear your thoughts and comments :D

  6. I thought so too, but it's just not happening. I keep getting distracted and by the time I get around to reading the Qur'an, I'm falling asleep over it. I think I've finally hit my limit for number of things I can be reading at one time. So that's...five. I can read five things at once. Bah. It'll get pulled out of the Bag of Non-Fiction eventually.
