Anyone who has been following this blog for any period of time should know that I find few things more exciting than reading and discussion of Scripture. I have already participated in a couple of Twitter Bible reading groups in the past and have found them incredibly stimulating and encouraging. In celebration of this Easter season, a few of my Twitter friends and I thought that it would be great to start another such group.
Starting this Wednesday, we will be reading a chapter every day, from the start of Luke until the end of Acts. We will tweet about and discuss the readings using the hashtag #Luke2Acts. As the readings are short, it shouldn’t require too much of your time. You can tweet about the passage in detail, or just lurk and follow other people’s comments. You won’t be required to tweet anything if you don’t want to, although we would love to hear your voice.
Everyone is welcome to take part. There will be people from across the theological and Church spectrum involved, with people of many different denominations, ages, beliefs, levels of theological education and Christian experience, and backgrounds involved. The goal of the group is to be encouraging, edifying, and exciting for all involved, wherever they are coming from. If you have controversial theological positions that you want to discuss, there are other places where that can be done. Please try to ensure that everyone feels welcome and included in the discussion, whether they have studied the Bible for many years or whether this is their very first time.
A complete reading plan, with further instructions, can be found here. I hope that you join us!
