For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been writing about reading the Bible. On Monday, October 1, St. Michael’s is offering a way for us as a congregation to read through the entire Bible over the course of a year. We have a program we will follow that appoints three passages per day: the first is the main section for the day, beginning of course at “In the beginning;” the second and third passages are much shorter and will come from one of Paul’s letters and from the Psalms. The intent is to make this process as much devotional and inspirational as it is informative and educational.
We’re asking folks to sign up for this, so we know how many people are going to participate; there will be a list available in church on Sunday, and you can also call or email the office and sign up that way. You can use any translation or edition of the Bible you prefer. If you’d like some suggestions, you can ask Nathan or me on Sunday, but i highly recommend this one. It’s an excellent study Bible that uses the NRSV translation, the same one we use in church on Sundays.
If you have any questions, please let us know. See you on Sunday, and in the mean time, please keep in your prayers all those affected by Florence. I’m sure in the days to come, we will have opportunities to offer additional help, but until such time we can always offer our prayers.
