Winter Reading List And Life Journals

Winter Reading List And Life Journals

Each quarter we provide a scripture reading schedule to encourage the development of your personal spiritual formation. We alternate between the New Testament and Old Testament each quarter and read the Psalms in the summer. Over the next few years we will end up reading the entire Old Testament once, the New Testament twice and the Psalms twice.   We’ve intentional chosen a slower pace so that we have time to really meditate and reflect on the text each day. This method also gives us regular re-entrance points each quarter if we happen to get out of rhythm.

Along with reading the text we’d encourage you to keep a journal of what you are learning. Here is a proposed process. It follows the acronym REAP:

READ: Read through the passage slowly. Write out a couple key words, phrases or verses.

EXAMINE: Make a note of insights or questions you have. If you are confused by a text, take time to look up some info about it in a good study bible or commentary.

APPLY: Write out how the text applies to your life. Does this text provide instruction, encouragement, guidance or conviction?

PRAY: Respond to what you have read by spending some time in prayer. If it is helpful, write out your payers.

This winter we are reading Genesis and Exodus.  You can download the reading list here: Winter 2016 Daily Readings, or bookmark this page online.

May you be blessed as you immerse yourself in scripture this year!
