Something new in 2018!

2018 is almost here! With it comes the desire to try something different on this blog. Following the daily Scripture reading guide from the Canadian Bible Society has served us well, but I’m feeling it’s time for a change.

One practice that appeals to me is reading the Bible through in a year. I’ve been on the lookout for just the right one-year reading plan and have found one that I think will not only take us through the Bible but teach us a lot as well. It’s put out by The Bible Project.

What is The Bible Project?

Here is an explanation from the "about us" page of their website:

“The Bible Project is a non-profit animation studio that produces short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. We create videos, podcasts, and study guides that explore the Bible’s unified story.
The Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God’s word to his people. We believe it ultimately points us to Jesus, who has the power to change individuals and whole communities when we let the biblical story speak for itself.
We focus on the Bible's overarching themes and each book’s literary design and are committed to understanding the Bible in its historical context.”

The Bible Project has put out a reading guide which, if we stick with it, will take us through the Bible in one year and the Psalms 2 1/2 times. Each day’s reading consists of 3 or so chapters from somewhere in the Bible plus a Psalm. (Download a PDF of the reading plan HERE.)

To go along with the reading are several series of animated educational videos that explain each Bible book (Reading Series), delve into its historical roots (Torah Series) and explore Bible themes, words, and more (Theme, Word and other series).

I will still post a devo each day that that will focus on a verse or two from the day’s reading. (Some of these will be re-posts and some newly written.) I will also embed the relevant videos in the day’s post.

Will you join me on this journey through the Bible? We start January 1st!

In the meantime, explore The Bible Project website. It’s amazing!
