Together in the Word

I have been thinking about what we all could do together this year... and praying about it.

The message this morning was a challenge for us to "Go Deeper" in our relationship with the Lord, in our knowledge of the Word, in our reading.

Then today, Kelly at Where's the Beef suggested to me that maybe we could read our Daily Bible Reading together.

So here are the thoughts for now....

Would any of you be interested in having the same reading plan... and then having some discussion together one day during the week? I plan to have a Mister Linky... for you to sign up on each week - and link to your post on your blog. (Or if you are not a blogger - you could just comment/discuss with us.) Not only would it be fun - but we could actually hold each other accountable.

So, leave a comment and let me know if you are interested. Not a commitment- just interest.

Also, I am going to see if I can get a button for us all to add to our side bar soon. I am thinking that I will call it WEDNESDAYS in the WORD. *** This has been changed to TUESDAYS TOGETHER in the WORD. *** I know that many of you participate in the Word-filled Wednesdays - and I am not trying to compete... You could actually do both.

Let me know what you think...

Am I really the first to comment??

I will be in prayer on this. I'm definitely interested. Our Pastor's son preached this a.m. and was talking about the upcoming year... to sum it up, a deeper walk would be my prayer.

I believe accountability is so important. I'll check back with you soon on this.

DeeDee,

This is a great idea. Actually Gina at Chats with an Old Lady is doing something similar and I am going to link up with her. I have a button on my blog in case you are interested in seeing what she is doing.

DeeDee,

I would be interested in learning more about this....I have a plan that I follow in the back of my Bible but I'm always interested to learn more.

Please keep me posted. Happy New Year to you!! God bless you!

DeeDee,
I LOVE your blog! I, too, also read from a regular plan. As I study the Hebraic roots of our faith, I read the Parashah....(54 week Jewish Reading cycle w/ Brit Hadasha {New Covenant Readings)...

shalom aleichem!

p.s.- i'd be glad to help out in any way in regards to our Hebrew roots...

I would love to do this sweetie.

I think this sounds like a great idea! James and I both decided to do the New Testament read through, I have done the whole Bible this year, so we will be on the same plan!

Blessings!

you'll provide the reading list? or just discuss what we've read on our own?
I think accountablity is great, so this would probably help me out!
i'll see how far I get, but it sounds like something I would like to do!

DeeDee said...

I will provide the reading list. I can give the website and I am thinking that each week I will also post the next week's reading. That way we will all be reading the same passages each week. The discussion and/or blogs will be on what ever we each want - from that week's reading.

I hope to have another post later today with more details.

Sweet Blessings,
DeeDee

I think that idea rocks! I have been praying about a plan for the coming year and maybe this is God's answer. Look forward to hearing more about it and reading in God's Word with fellow bloggers. The accountability issue would be great, too.

I will follow whoever does it, but I usually study one book at a time! I am going to try to memorize 24 verses this year along with LPM blog. Hoping to go deeper with Him! Thanks for putting this together Dee Dee!
