The Renewal Works team proposes, the Rector endorses supported by the Vestry that beginning in September through the Cycle of the coming Church be the Bible Challenge to read the Bible in one year, Yes the entire Bible, Yes ! Where did we leave God? Where did leave him? For many of us, in truth, we left him at our mother’s knee or children’s Sunday school. What was going on as you left him? They were telling the stories of God’s people, Abraham, Isaac & Jacob and stories of Jesus, God’s son.
I suggest if that is true for you that you find a good children’s Bible; good in that it recounts just the facts of the story without elaboration. If you have children of your own, so much the better; read the stories and as you read, eavesdrop, overhear you as you read the story of God’s loving care of his people through history.
As the Meister said, “Your best chance is look where you saw him last!”
Note: Over 200 people pledged to read the Bible, 80 to read the Bible all the way through.
