The Bible Challenge

In our bicentennial year, which incidentally is also the 500th anniversary of the Christian Reformation, we offer a challenge! The Bible is our primary source for the development and cultivation of our faith. It is from the Bible that our corpus of tradition and liturgy have evolved. As Anglicans, we read scripture through the lens of reason and tradition.

 

The challenge –– “The mission, should you choose to accept it” –– is to read the entire Bible in one year. In order to aid in this, we recommend using The Bible Challenge edited by Marek Zabriskie. This text is available through Forward Movement. We will launch our Bible Challenge in October (Reformation Month!) We will gather on the first Saturdays of the month (October 2017 through October 2018) to unpack our readings together.

 

 How to Take the Challenge  

Step One: Sign up at the church reception desk or email Crystal Jones by September 15.

 

Step Two: Make arrangements to purchase The Bible Challenge. You may pre-order the The Bible Challenge at a discount rate of $14. Pre-ordered books will be distributed on September 24. To pre-order, submit your payment by check, payable to Christ Church Cathedral (write “The Bible Challenge” in the memo line) and leave it at the reception desk (or mail it to the cathedral) for the attention of Judy Hering.

 

Step Three: Join in the group meetings to reflect on the scriptures with others. The monthly meetings will be held on the first Saturdays of the month, from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. Meeting dates will be as follows:
