Now is a great time to get into reading your Bible a little bit more. Here are three that we recommend from the Bible app from YouVersion:
Many of the devotions from the Bible Project are excellent with great videos that explain what you’re reading. PJ is going through “The Biblical Storyline” reading plan and appreciating how the Bible is one big story about God and about how we fit into it. (Did you know that you can listen to the Bible on YouVersion? That’s how I’ll sometimes “read” my Bible. Perhaps as I’m driving or doing something around the house.)
Here’s a 7-day plan called “No Shadow of Fear” on what the Bible has to say about fear.
Here’s a devotional meditating on the Lord’s Prayer from NT Wright. It takes a look into the Lord’s Prayer as a way to take us from worry to hope.
We also want us to think as Christians about Coronavirus and current events. These are two articles we’ve found helpful:
Here’s a COVID-19 Checklist for Christians — We can do something to be a part of God’s healing and restoration in the world, even in the midst of this crisis. Look out for opportunities to do so with Anchor City in the coming days as well.
Here’s a great article called “Love in the Time of Coronavirus” written for Christian leaders by Andy Crouch — but really for everyone — about how we can choose love over fear and the possibility of helping to shape the culture for the common good, along with some great guidelines for how to deal with the coronavirus. We shared it in an earlier email, but it’s worth sharing again.
