The Bible in 90 Days

  • Friday, January 23, 2015

I've got two confessions:  I got a late start, and I'm not keeping up.  But I'm enjoying the benefits nonetheless. 

If you know Haven Today, you know each year starts with our collective read through "The Bible in 90 Days."  Well, I started the schedule a week late.  And, candidly, I haven't been able to make up the lost ground.  But it really doesn't matter.  It's such a wonderful experience to get an overview of scripture, many of passages would otherwise remain largely unread.

One Sure Guide in An Unsure World

We had a display at church this weekend featuring fragments from the Dead Sea Scrolls and a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.   It was pretty awe inspiring to see up close such amazing treasures dating back to 1455.

I also made sure that my children saw it.   As a mom, faith in Christ and building a relationship with Him through His Word is my most important and most privileged priority.

Thinking about the significance of the morning, I was reminded by something Anne Graham Lotz has shared - something her mother wrote to her in the flyleaf of her first Bible ...
