Join us as we read through the Bible in 2012!

Wow – We saw God do amazing things in 2011, and we look expectantly to how, through His amazing grace, He will work through us in 2012! And so we've decided to once again read through the entire Bible together as a community. This year we are going to return to the Discipleship Journal reading plan we used several years ago, and we want you to join us! 

The good news about the plan we are using is that YOU ARE NOT BEHIND even though it's already January 3rd. So, it's not too late to get started and jump right in. The water is "living!"

Why this plan? Well, this is the plan for people like me that are a bit lacking in the discipline category. It has readings for 25 days each month. So, if you miss a few days, you're OK. If you never miss, you get 5 or 6 bonus days to drill deeper into what you've already read.

Additionally, this plan is not a Genesis to Revelation plan. If you use this plan, you will read a sampling from the Old Testament and the New Testament every day. It really gives you a good feel for the unity of Scripture and has variety, which they say is the spice of life!

There are several ways to use this plan:

  • Print out The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan. Put it in your Bible, and check the boxes as you go along. 

  • Read along at YouVersion.com. This allows you to keep track of your reading plan on your computer, iPhone, and/or iPad. And they talk to each other. So, when you do your reading on your phone, it also keeps track of your progress on your computer and iPad and vice versa. It's that cloud thing at work!

  • Download the plan at NavPress.com here: Discipleship Journal Reading Plan. 

Several times per month we will share a commentary on our blog that shares a few thoughts on the place of generosity in the sections that are coming up. I hope you will join us for a fun year through the Bible in 2012!
