The Path: A Journey through the Bible (Published by Forward Movement)

June 25 – August 29, Sundays at 9:15 and Tuesdays at 10:30

Read the Bible in 70 days… or 24 hours!

The Path includes all the primary passages of the Bible in the New Revised Standard Version, the same version we use in worship. Connecting text folds in paraphrases from Scripture that are not quoted. There are also study questions and suggestions. Each of the 24 chapters are 10-15 pages long, and a  chapter can be read and studied in less than an hour. There are 70 days left in the summer; that’s 10 weeks. That’s less than two hours a week of Bible reading. We can do this! Plus God wants us to do it.

The adult formation goal for Saint James’ is that as many parishioners as possible read The Path, the entire book, by Labor Day. If we reach that goal, it means that a large percentage of active parishioners will have revisited or read for the first time the whole Bible story. That means that we will have taken a huge step towards becoming a more Biblically literate congregation. We can and will, with God’s help.
