We made it to the end!
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” –2 Timothy 4:7
For those who have now read through the whole Bible
This is a big accomplishment. Whether this is your first time reading the whole Bible or not, I hope this experience has given you a new perspective on the Holy Scriptures. I hope you will always continue to read the Bible on your own—I can assure you that the deeper you dive, the longer you keep at it, the more rewarding the experience will become. Each time through you will recognize favorite passages like old friends, you will see other passages in a totally fresh light, you will find new meanings and be reminded of eternal truths.
For those who have been along for part of the swim, splashing around
However much you have been part of this experience—jumping in and out, dipping a toe in occasionally, or just splashing around from time to time—it’s been great to have you along! There will be more opportunities in the future for jumping into Bible Swim; maybe next time via Twitter! And you can always go back to the web site to review or catch up on anything you missed.
And now, how about that party?!
You may recall that in the introductory video on the web site, by the wonderful Brian Ide and Colleen Dodson-Baker—well worth watching again—at the end Colleen suggests a pool party at the rectory at the conclusion of Bible Swim. So let’s do it! Watch these emails and the web site for details to come.
