So lockdown started on a national level on Thursday. There’s no pretending these are easy times to go through…
…but I’ve got a proposition for you, which I’d love as many of you as possible to get behind. All the more in our enforced confinement and isolation, this could be a spiritually bonding and strengthening discipline.
We’re teaming up with St Andrew’s bookshop to get as many people as possible throughout the nation on the same page (literally) as we journey through the coming year.
Many of you have already read Choose Life – in which case, could you get your friends, family, youth group or church to join in?
If you’re not familiar with Choose Life, it was voted ‘Devotional of the Year’. It is a collection of 365 daily readings, inviting you to a year of good choices. If you embrace the challenge fully, it may be the most memorable year of your life!
Could you buy a stack load for Christmas presents? One mate has just bought 50 of them for his gang!
This Big Church 365 Read is a great way to connect youth groups, home groups, student CUs etc together during lockdown and being physically apart. Each week, I’ll post a short weekly video message to encourage those taking part.
How do I get involved?
There are two ways to join. You can buy the book for £12 and have access to the weekly videos OR join The Big Church 365 Read Club for only £24 (equivalent of £2 a month) and you will:
- Be supporting the work of GLO to the tune of £12
- Be sent a copy of ‘Choose Life’
- Receive a free copy of my book, ‘Sacrifice’
- Receive 10% discount on all purchases from www.standrewsbookshop.co.uk and other offers
- Have the opportunity to join a Choose Life trip to visit Burundi – either as an individual or as a group (dates and costs to be confirmed).
If you’re interested in getting 5/10/20/etc copies, then email Steve of St Andrew’s Bookshop for some deals on bigger volume of books.
Thanks for all your support!
No time for God? Make time! Why not get out of bed or off the couch and onto your knees? It may lead to revival. Choose Life gives you 365 daily doses of challenge and encouragement. Blessed are the radicals!
