Ah, the first day of a new year — time to look back, look ahead, keep calm & carry on. One of the things our household will be carrying on with in 2012 is reading through the Bible with a community of local fellow-readers. Door Creek and Blackhawk churches here in Madison are encouraging their communities to join in a reading plan called Eat This Book.
The reading plan includes three or four chapters of Scripture each day, accompanied by a reading from the Book of Psalms, and is posted on YouVersion.com. You can sign up there to have the daily readings sent to you via email or rss, and use that site to take notes & track your progress. The churches are also supporting this reading community by providing study guides & weekly teaching on the texts, all available at the links above.
The readings for today: Genesis 1-3 and Psalm 1. Join in if you like!
