The National Bible Week 2011 will be celebrated this week January 24 – 30. Thus, National Bible Sunday is on January 30.
The theme May They Be One highlights a sub-theme, “Becoming One Nation in the Stewardship of Creation” (Ps 8:3-6 GNT).
The Bible Week will focus on the activities to the “I Proclaim” event. This is the Continuous Reading of the Bible from the Book of Genesis to the Book of Revelation. Visit the website at www.ecba-cbcp.com and click the link NBW logo for the different options of doing the “i Proclaim”.
Kindly deepen the bible week activities with biblical celebrations and bible rallies that respond to the social concerns of ecological care, family and life values and youth formation (CBCP Youth Year).
Continue to promote common activities of Bible Enthronement in Families, BECs, Schools, Churches, Institutes, Convents, Houses of Formation, Public Places etc.; Gospel Sharing in homes, campuses and public places; Family Bible Encounter (quiz); Extemporaneous speech (proclamation) of the Word of God on Creation Texts; Biblialympics (walk – run for the bible, palaro sa biblia) etc. Add a slant to stewardship (care, protection, awareness) of Creation to the common activities for the Bible Week. Maximize the Salitext, the radio, tv (cable) to promote active participation.
Let us celebrate meaningfully the National Bible Week/Sunday and enjoy communicating with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Long live the Words of the Lord – the Verbum Domini!
