A Pastoral Word
Start the New Year by Reading the Bible
Starting on January 1, everyone is encouraged to read their bibles daily. We will be using The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan as our guide. It features an Old Testament, a Gospel, an Epistle reading and a Psalm for each of the daily readings. At our Board Retreat, the elders and deacons talked about how they wanted to know the Bible better. So we have covenanted together to join in reading God's word daily. And to help us with our readings, we will meet weekly to reflect on our daily readings. There will be a day-time gathering and an after-work time gathering for this opportunity. This will not be a typical Bible Study but a chance to share with each other where the text intersects with our lives, and a chance to share what words or phrase surprised us or got us to thinking. It will be an opportunity for all of us to dwell in the Word of God. Please watch for more details to come. The Discipleship Bible Reading Plans are available in the narthex if you would like to get a head start.
