Scripture is the living and active word of God, that tells a unified story,  leading us to Jesus.

Congregational Application of the Practice

This season, we encourage you practice reading scripture before looking at a screen. This practice aims to guide our affections and desires toward the triune God before the onslaught of news, updates, and tasks.  Alternatively,  if you use your phone for scripture, read scripture first. 

    Feeling overwhelmed? We recommend the "Intro to the Bible" series from the Bible Project as a good place to start as you approach scripture.
