Each new year brings with it a sense of anticipation. We're inviting each Brooksider to join us in 2018 to read through Scripture every day. Click the button below to download a copy of the reading plan. You can also pick a copy up at Connection Corner on Sunday or access the daily audio version on twitter @brookside365.
Mon-Fri, you’ll be reading a chapter of the New Testament each day. On Sat & Sun, you’ll read from Psalms, Proverbs & selected readings that line up thematically during Lent & Advent. By the end of the year, you’ll have read the entire New Testament, all of Proverbs and many of the Psalms.
Looking to do 365 as a family? Here are a few tips:
For video summaries of each book of the Bible, and other helpful resources, check out The Bible Project. Other great resources are the books "Asking the Right Questions" by Matthew Harmon and "Journey Into God's Word" by J. Scott Duvall and J. Daniel Hays.
Daily journaling can help you read the Bible with intentionality. Try using the SOAP method (from Wayne Cordeiro’s The Divine Mentor) to focus on what God’s teaching you:
Scripture: As you read, ask God to bring one passage or verse to your attention that you can journal on.
Observation: Take note of the context and write down what point the Biblical author is making in your own words.
Application: Write out how you can apply what you’ve learned from this passage. Sometimes application isn’t something you do, but something you remember or reflect on.
Prayer: Write out a short prayer to God to close your time in Scripture.
This book will be a helpful tool to inspire you, encourage you and give you practical ways to journal. Available at Connection Corner for $10 on Sundays or click here to buy on Amazon.
