This year for Lent I'm following a reading plan which comprises of a collection of extracts from various early church fathers writings. Each day I'm going to write a short overview and any thoughts on the text and link back to the source material so you can also follow along with me too, if you'd like. The overview of each day will probably be posted on the day after. The reading should only take 10-15 minutes of your time, and by day 40, you will have read ten different Fathers:

Didache, Diognetus, Polycarp, Ignatius, Justin Martyr, Cyprian, Athanasius, Cyril of Jerusalem, Ambrose of Milan, and Leo the Great.

I'll be reading from the “Church Fathers Lenten Reading Plan: With Texts”.

Day one begins with the full text of the Didache. Come and join me on this journey through Church History to get a glimpse into the minds of that great cloud of witnesses that have come before us to defend and uphold the faith!
