Reading the Bible Together

Let’s try something new in this new season of been-back-to-school and cooler weather. Let us, as a church family, read the 4 bible selections of the lectionary during the week. The Lectionary is an assigned schedule of Bible passages used in both daily and Sabbath worship (gbod.org). Each weekday we can read the bible together. We start on Monday by reading the text preached by the pastor the day before. Tuesday we begin reading the lectionary selections for the upcoming Sunday by reading the Old Testament text. Wednesday we read the Psalm for the week. Thursday gives us the epistle (letter) or the Gospel selection. On Friday we will read together the text for the upcoming Sunday’s sermon.

You noticed that the Sunday text is read 3 times: before you hear it preached, while you are hearing it preached and after you have heard it preached. This will give you three footholds on which to stand in God’s foundational, transformational Word.

In the 1st reading think about:

          Speedbumps (what jolts you & makes you take notice)

          God’s action in this periscope

          Where you feel the text cross your life.

In the 2nd reading I will share with you my findings.

In the 3rd reading please consider:

          Differences between the 1st and 2nd reading.

          What God might be saying to you in this text.

There may be opportunity during worship for us to talk about the differences we noticed between the 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd reading of the text.

Please join me in frequently reading the Bible.
