Tomorrow is the Eighth Day of Christmas, a.k.a. the Holy Name of Jesus (it was on the eighth day that Jesus was circumcised, and the Bible tells us that it was at his circumcision that he was given the Name of Jesus). On the civil calendar it is also New Year’s Day. No matter which way you look at it, Holy Name or New Year’s, it’s a good time to start reading the Bible!
This page from ESV.org offers many different ways to read the Bible this year, including the Daily Office from the Book of Common Prayer and a Chronological Plan (which I have just added to my RSS feed). (The Daily Office readings are similar, but not identical, to the daily readings we publish in the church bulletin each week. If you’d like to access those online, you can do so here.) You can read the passages online, have them sent to your your E-mail or your RSS feed, to your iCal or your mobile device, or print a hard copy of the reading guide to keep in your Bible. Now there is no reason not to read the Bible every day in 2009!
