In our latest edition of @SU we’ve turned the spotlight firmly on the Bible. It is, of course, right at the heart of everything we do!
Our work helps children and young people find ways to explore the Bible for themselves: to grasp the whole story; to delve in to the history; to read as part of a daily prayer time. Read on to get under the skin of some of our current Bible-centred projects, meet some of the people whose lives have been influenced, and find out more about why we do what we do.
We love telling stories in our magazine, but sometimes there just isn't enough space for them all! Here's a few extra resources we mentioned...
The Bible in Mission
Wendy Strachan allowed us to use an excerpt from a longer article which was published in Bible in Mission, papers gathered as part of the Edinburgh 2010. If you'd like to read the whole thing, the ebook is available free for personal use thanks to publisher Regnum Books International. Wendy is International Children’s Ministry Co-ordinator for Scripture Union International and is based in Brisbane, Australia.
Bible reading resources
Helping others get into the Bible often means sharing honestly about the challenges we face ourselves and the things that help us to get started and keep going. Elaine Duncan, Chief Executive of the Scottish Bible Society, and Hazel Gray, Regional Worker for East and Midlothian, shared some of their top tips with us.
Here in Scotland we want to promote ways of helping people of every age to understand the Bible for themselves. We've put together a list of Bible reading materials for all ages and stages, and a list of great digital Bible reading resources.
