2012 journey

At Journey onWord, we are excited about the opportunity to help believers grow in faith. Over the last few years we have focused on reading through the Bible, which is an important step in getting to know God. For 2012, our emphasis is going to be equally as intentional and focused on Scripture.

There are two simple and fundamental truths that will guide our path in 2012.  First, that the Bible is the living, breathing Word of God, and is foundational to our daily existence and the experience of knowing God.  And second, we believe that the stresses and pace of our modern lives wreak havoc on our daily discipline to be in the Word.  We want you to have the opportunity to grow deeper in your faith as you study God’s Word. So we have decided on the guiding principle of “slower and deeper” in the new year.

We are excited about surveying God’s Word in a different format this year. Our hope is that you will choose to dig deeper with us in 2012. Below, you will find an outline of our reading plan.

Jan – Mar
You will have the privilege of studying key chapters of the Bible. The plan will give you two days to read and reflect on each chapter. Our goal is for you to read the chapter two times on the first day for reflection, and then read it again on the next day writing down key points (we’ll provide the study sheets).

Apr – Jun
During the second quarter, you will have the privilege of looking at the life of Jesus. The reading will begin with the cross and resurrection, and cover key chapters on Jesus’ earthly journey. We begin at the end of Christ’s earthly ministry to prepare for Easter.

Jul – Sep
Studying the parables and miracles of Jesus will take us into the fall season. This will give you great insight and encouragement as you reflect on the meanings of His parables and see the greatness of His miracles.

Oct – Dec
Fall will find us getting to really know some great men and women of the Bible. Taking the time to enjoy Abraham, Moses, David, Mary and others will be an enjoyable way to end the year.

Journey onWord will provide you with the reading plan, the study sheets and encouragement to grow in Knowing God in 2012.  Let this be a year of refreshment, growth and effectiveness on your personal journey. As always, you will receive each week’s reading assignment on Saturday night for the next week. It is our hope that you will partner with us in this focused study for 2012.
