Is 2015 the year you read the Bible?

Is 2015 the year you read the Bible?

The Rev. Marek Zabriskie offers a plan for reading the entire Bible in one year:

Most Americans make a New Year’s resolution. The No. 1 resolution is to lose weight. No. 2 is to exercise more. But within three days, most Americans quit their resolution because they have no one to hold them accountable.

Why not make a more lasting resolution this year that will spiritually enhance you from within? Make a New Year’s resolution to read the Bible.

In 2011, I created The Bible Challenge and urged my Episcopal church to read the entire Bible in a year. It began a movement that has started to span the world. We now have over 500,000 participants in more than 2,500 churches in over 40 countries reading the Bible in a year.

The recommended plan is here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
