Learning from some pastors

Our area pastor’s group met.  We were just talking about what things were happening in our congregations. One pastor said that they have had a very positive response to a simple bible reading program they put in place this year.  The sermons, youth groups and small groups are all following this reading plan so it adds a sense of unity to a fairly large congregation.  Another spoke up and said that in most Evangelical churches about 50% of its members read the bible on a regular basis.

So, let Fresh Read state for the record, there is nothing better for you than a regular (and fresh) reading of the Scriptures.  There are many plans out there, but the one my friend mentioned is here:  http://www.blackhawkchurch.org/resources/eat-this-book/

a list of popular plans is here: http://www.esv.org/resources/reading-plans-devotions/

The back of your bible might have a plan also – the picture above is from my ESV Literary Study Bible.
