Presiding Bishop Curry video: invitation to the Good Book Club
Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has offered an invitation to Episcopalians and all Christians to join the more than 25 partners presenting the Good Book Club, an opportunity for reflection and prayer.
The Good Book Club is a churchwide program that invites the reading of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles during the liturgical seasons of Lent and Easter 2018. Led by Forward Movement, www.forwardmovement.org the Good Book Club readings begin the Sunday prior to Ash Wednesday (February 11, 2018), and finish on Pentecost (May 20, 2018).
The Good Book Club, the Presiding Bishop said, provides an opportunity to “read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the Holy Scriptures.” He noted that “The Gospel of Luke tells the story of Jesus” while “the Acts of the Apostles tells the story of those who followed in the footsteps of Jesus.”
He concludes, “I hope you'll join me.”
Dioceses, congregations and organizations are encouraged to post and share the video and resource links.
Resources for the Good Book Club are available here www.goodbookclub.org including daily readings.
Spanish resources and information are available here. http://clubbiblico.org

Forward Day by Day, Forward Movement’s flagship devotional, will use Good Book Club readings during Lent-Easter 2018. This provides for hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to join the Good Book Club.
