theStory: A new digital daily devotional from Canadian Christian leaders & thought leaders

TheStory logo and link

The most wonderful project has just been made public and I’m sure readers of this blog will want to know about it. It is a digital, all-Canadian, daily devotional that will take you through the Bible in about a four-year cycle.

Scripture Union says this will be the first Canadian daily devotional series. It is written entirely by Canadian Christian leaders and thought leaders. I am so excited not only to have participated as a writer in this project (Genesis 12-18 and John 12), but to be able to read what my peers across the country have to say on their portions of scripture!

You will likely either know or know of many of the writers. I’ve included the writers list at the bottom of this post so you can check out who’s writing. You won’t have to wait long to get started because the launch will be May 19, 2013 and you can subscribe now.

You can follow theStory on Facebook and Twitter.
