Communal Bible Reading // January 3-7

At Redemption Church we have been learning several spiritual disciplines together over the last several months that help us make space to be with Jesus regularly.  Those disciplines have included silence & solitude, abiding, emotional awareness, casting cares, and Bible reading for transformation both individually and communally. 

We want to build on our time with Jesus by learning a new set of practices in the coming months focusing on becoming more like Jesus. Of course, while there will be new things we are learning and practicing together, it is important to continue carving out space to be with Jesus; everything flows from there. 

As Jesus said in John 15:5, “Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” 

For that reason, we have created a Communal Bible Reading exercise that will be made available weekly throughout this year. Each week will include 5 days of readings, and instructions to walk you prayerfully through the day’s passage. We used the same exercise during the season of Advent. 

This first week of 2022, you’ll find 5 Psalms to meditate on in your time with Jesus. You can download the plan below. 

We’re looking forward to how the Holy Spirit will continue shaping us as the body of Christ this year!
