What is a Word Partner?

Simply put, we will read and discuss the Bible together, daily, partnering with one another through discussion as we discover our stories in His.

It’s amazing how a commitment to reading the Word of God on a daily basis will open your eyes to seeing God in the practical of our lives.

It’s truly life-changing and I invite you to join me as a Word Partner.

A daily post will be provided below and you must be logged in to comment in the comments section. You can register here:

We will begin in the book of John and read one section at a time per day. The daily reading will be posted along with links to do deeper study via commentaries.

You are welcome to begin and/or join into an ongoing conversation. This is our place and participation is encouraged. Seeing another’s perspective is enlightening.

Things to consider when reading the Word:

It is truth and the truth can divide. You may feel conviction. You may not agree with someone else’s viewpoint. That is okay.

If you feel any sort of condemnation, please reach out to someone you trust.

We are all at different levels of understanding the Bible, let the Holy Spirit be each one’s Counselor.

Please be respectful in your language and please do not knock someone else’s viewpoint or try to argue your own point.

A great philosophy is that you should be able to say anything to anyone if it is done in respect. If it isn’t respectful, please don’t say it.
