‘So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.’ Isaiah 55:11 NIV
2020 Bible vision for everyone, everywhere.
Although birthed here in Scotland, we have a vision of a world-wide community working together to cover the continents, towns, villages, streets, and countryside in the words of the Bible.
The idea is simple – create a smartphone app that runs through the Bible in one year, highlighting daily verses and translating it into multiple languages, providing access for the world’s populations.
Then encourage one another to read, speak and hear the words of the Bible together each day by recording our readings and sharing them on a global platform.
Together, if we can cover God’s world in His Word, lives will be changed.
How you can be involved
Commit to reading the Bible aloud each day throughout the year; covering your local area in the words of the Bible.
Community groups can gather together to read the Bible aloud, sharing in fellowship and spurring one another on. This may be church groups, work colleagues, school groups, friends, families, everywhere or anywhere people come together.
Create an event for a wider audience, enabling more people to be involved, hearing the Bible read aloud in your community or town.
As we work towards the 2020 date we would appreciate your prayers moving forward.
- that the vision will become a reality.
- that we will receive a warm reception from our colleagues in other Bible Societies and global organisations and they will be keen to work together with us.
- that we will manage to build the team we need in Scotland to develop all the component parts.
- that people’s lives will be transformed through reading the Bible in 2020 and the world will be changed significantly by the power of God’s Word.
