engage with the bible in 2022
The last two years have changed lives across the world. Wherever you are in your faith journey, we have created resources to help you connect with, engage with, and love God’s Word. Because now, as much as ever, the Bible shines a light in the darkness, brings hope in times of despair, and shows us the God who created all things, and wants us to know Him.

The changes in the last two years look different from one individual to the next. In the midst of this upheaval, the one thing that remains constant is the truth, urgency and necessity of God’s Word. There are different ways we can engage with these words, and we have provided resources that will help you in your personal devotion as you contemplate the impact of this pandemic, and God’s work through it.
