Bible Reading Plan
Redemptive-Historical Bible Reading Plan
This year we are doing a 16 part plan that reveals God's plan of redemption in the Old Testament. Here is what the organizer says about it:
"I have outlined redemptive history in 16 stages, from creation up through the open-ended expectation of the Day of the Lord. Then I provide carefully curated sections from the OT that trace this history. I tried to pick at least one chapter from every OT book, but to keep it reasonably short I had to leave some out. I also pepper in psalms along the way. Then, for each stage, I provide a chapters from the NT that bring out how each of those steps of redemptive history (for ancient Israel) are fulfilled in the new era in Christ." Greg Laniers Blog
We will have three to five weeks to read and reflect on each part.
We will reflect on PART 13 for 2 more weeks.

14 accept Christ through Maximum Missions in Nicaragua
Three adults and 11 children from the Las Palomas community in San Miguel, Nicaragua, gave their lives to Jesus during a Maximum Missions event carried out by a team of 34 Nazarenes from the Southeast District of Nicaragua.
The activity took place 21-22 July, and the Las Palomas Church of the Nazarene hosted the event. The team carried out sports activities with an evangelistic focus, as well as a prayer crusade. They visited the community families house to house, praying for the sick and delivering baskets with basic foods to families in great need. Special activities were also carried out with the children.
“It caught the young people's attention and they asked who were the ones carrying out the activities,” said Reyna Ortega, an NMI member from Las Palomas. “That way we were able to reach them and evangelize them. That day souls came for Christ. It was everyone's work and effort. We were able to share our love for others. It was a blessing, both for my life and for the church in general.”
The 34 team members were comprised of laypeople active in various local church ministries like Missions Mobilization, Nazarene Missions International (NMI), Nazarene Youth International (NYI), Nazarene Compassionate Ministries (NCM), Nazarene Discipleship International (NDI), and District Evangelism. They worked in unity, both for their organization and to carry out each part of the activity.
“We give glory to God for the unity between the ministries of the district and even more, for this time of sowing and harvest in the Las Palomas community,” said Icsa Jared, Missions Mobilization coordinator from the Southeast District of Nicaragua.

Humor... Kind of
The car crash
A priest and a rabbi are in a car crash and it's pretty bad. Both of their cars are totaled but neither one of them is hurt. After they crawl out of their cars, the rabbi says, "So you're a priest. That's interesting; I'm a rabbi. Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left to either one of them but we're unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace."
The priest replies, "Oh, yes, I agree. It's a miracle that we survived and are here together." "And here's another miracle," says the rabbi. "My car is destroyed but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink the wine to help celebrate our good fortune," he says, handing the bottle to the priest.
The priest nods in agreement, opens the wine, drinks half of it, and hands it back to the rabbi. The rabbi takes it and puts the cap back on.
"Aren't you going to have any? asks the priest.
"Not right now," says the rabbi. "I think I'm going to wait until after the police make their report."
The Pastor's title
A local Pastor joined a community Service Club, and the members thought they would have a little fun with him. Under his name badge they printed, "Hog Caller" as his occupation. Everyone made a big fanfare as the badge was presented.
The Pastor responded by saying, " I usually am called the "Shepherd of the sheep"... but I guess you know your people better than I do."
