Read the Bible in 9 Months
Presbyterians are often referred to as people of the book. The book, of course, is the Bible. The Bible is central to us as the scriptures reveal God’s love for us and all creation from the very beginning. Presbyterians are shaped by the Bible in all we say and do – in worship, in mission, in how we govern ourselves, and how we understand the life of faith. The Bible is a rich treasure and gift to us from God.
The Reading the Bible in 9 Months (RB9M) program – which has involved over 250 members and friends – is a daily reading program that weaves together both testaments in an enlightening and enriching experience of our history as God’s people. Daily readings from September 11, 2022 – May 20, 2023 are arranged in such a way that the connections between the books of the Bible and the overarching themes and story cycles of scripture come together to reveal the unity of the Bible. Monthly gatherings are offered for those who would like to support and encourage one another in the discipline of daily reading, and to ask questions raised from the readings.
