Happy New Year TD’ers!
Sandra, Angela, Nathaniel, and I, as well as probably a few more of you (I know Jenny did), took on the opportunity to join Joni Eareckson Tada and her husband, Ken, to read the entire Bible in 2014 in chronological order (trying to read the recorded events in the order they actually occurred or in the order the books were written).
It’s been well over a decade since I last read the Bible in a year. I wasn’t sure if I could do it again, as I recall it was very difficult. This year, it was MUCH easier with the help of http://www.youversion.com aka http://www.bible.com. It was a tremendous time of considering and contemplating God’s story again.
What made it easier was 1) the tracking software they have that helps gauge my progress and keep me on pace; and 2) the option of reading the text or having world-renowned artist, Max McLean, read the chapters to me (click on NIV version for this).
We’re planning on doing it again in 2015! If any of you would like to join us, check out those websites, click “Reading Plans” and select the “Chronological” plan. Or, if you prefer another plan, like the classic one year plan (OT, NT, Psalms, Proverbs everyday), feel free to choose that one. Just as long as you are eating daily meals of spiritual food and getting better familiarized with God’s Word and God’s story.
Let us know if you are planning to join us. We’d love to share in the journey with you! – Arthur
