According to a Pew Research Center poll conducted last September, only a minority of PC (USA) laity reported reading the Bible on their own during the prior week. White mainline Protestants surveyed got an average of 15.8 correct answers out of 32 that were asked to test Biblical knowledge. (Want to take the test? Click here).
So this summer I will be reading through the Bible by way of 50 key passages. Will you join me? If you start June 1 and read a passage a day you'll get through the entire list by the time I return from sabbatical...twice! You can even get a message with the day's scripture delivered daily right to your inbox: click here to sign up.
Even though I will be physically away from the church, I like to think we'll stay connected as we journey through the Bible together.
