It's been few years since we did a read-through-the-Bible-in-a-year program. But it's time once again at the beginning of the new year to do it again. This year we will use the online ESV program found here.
You can read the texts provided each day on your computer or phone or you can just note what the readings are and use your own Bible. If you want to have a copy of the plan on paper so you can read from your physical Bible, you can download the pdf file here. I think I'll use my own Bible. I like to make notes and I can better remember where passages are visually in my own well-used Bible. But that's up to you.
I've also created a closed Facebook page for those of you who want to comment or ask questions about any of the daily readings. This will be a private page and NOT open to the public. So only members of the group will see the comments and questions. You can use the posts on this page to share something surprising you read in the daily reading, ask a question, or even ask for prayer. It's up to you. I'll do my best to post comments regularly to encourage you in your reading or explain and apply some portion of Scripture. It's easy to get discouraged with a through-the-Bible-in-a-year program. Hopefully this FB page will help keep us all on track and motivated.
When you click on the Facebook link and get to that page you won't see much because the page is private. Just click the "join" button and I'll get a notification to approve your request. If you know of Providence members or attenders that would like to join, feel free to add them to the group. Of course, if you don't have a Facebook account, you'll have to do that first (I think).
Happy New Year!
