Every June, we'd normally plan a service and events to mark the birthday of our church. This year marked the 54th anniversary and our celebrations were a little different. However, a common theme from the last few years has been for Kingswinford Young Christians to set the whole church family a challenge and whilst Covid-19 presents a lot of those, it’s not going to stop us from asking you all to join us again. So for the month of June we challenged the whole church family to join us in reading the Bible.
We followed the “A Word-in-Time” readings prepared by the Methodist Church - so those of you with a prayer handbook or who already followed the readings online may well have been a step ahead of us - but so that everyone had access, we copied them ready for download here.
All of us read at different times and in different ways; some of us will be alone, some will read with partners or children; but before reading, many pray that God guides their understanding... So, as you read, note anything which shouts out to you – for you personally, for your church family and for the world.
Send Melanie or Megan your thoughts so they can bring them together and share them, and as the year progresses, we will offer an opportunity to meet and discuss what we have learned from our study in virtual church, so watch out for an invite. If you are able and want to read the reflections produced to go with these readings, you can find them daily right here. We look forward to sharing in this journey with you and receiving your thoughts. God Bless.
Update: The August 2020 Bible Readings list is available here.
