Take the Bible Challenge!

The Bible Challenge is a way for people of all ages in this Diocese to join Bishop Waldo in reading the entire Bible in one year beginning October 1, 2012.

The purpose is to put ourselves in the presence of God as we read and to let the text shape us and transform us. The process should be one of joy and discovery….According to the Center for Biblical Studies, individuals who read “the Bible for 21 days in a row…have an 80% chance of developing a lifetime discipline of daily Bible reading.” Daily reading also has “a positive measurable impact on moral behavior” and develops spiritual maturity.”

Here are the passages:
