Over the next 12 months we are committed to being as faithful as possible (though may need some catch up occasions) – in reading the scripture texts.
- Use a bible that is easy for you to read.
- If you have read it before choose a different translation.
- If you have children read one of the passages together.
- If there is too much text to read choose either the Old Testament or the New Testament and stick with that…..
Make it work for you and your family and life situation! At the end of the year we will have a celebration! Please join us!
To encourage participation and keep me accountable I will be posting comments on our new Trent-Durham Facebook Page …… Trent-Durham Anglicans! and short notes via Twitter – @BishopLindaTD . Let me know if you are joining us in this great adventure in reading the whole of the bible.
My prayers are with you as you read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the scriptures! Blessings in Christ, +Linda Nicholls
Here is a link to the printout pamplet or guide to what to read each day.
From the pamphlet
You can start this schedule on January 1 or any day of the year that you like. This schedule works ideally if you begin on a Monday because we encourage readers to read portions of the Bible Monday through Saturday and assume that on Sunday they will be in church hearing the Scriptures read aloud. The Bible is best understood in the context of a faith community and by persons who are committed to following the teachings of Jesus and obeying the Word of God in their daily life. Merely hearing the Scriptures read aloud on Sunday, however, is not enough to know and experience the living, life ‐ transforming Word of God
