CBR: Community Bible Reading

Daily Bible Reading & Journal


CBR journaling is the practice of writing to Jesus as you read the Scriptures. As you read the day’s chapters, you'll use the daily guided sheets to write to Jesus about what you have read. Journaling to Jesus is praying through your pen.


The CBR Journal (Community Bible-Reading Journal) can be purchased through New City Church for $10/journal. For those in financial need, we'll gladly provide one free of charge to you. We want everyone to be able to participate.


We've created an open Facebook group for those participating in the daily community Bible-reading. The New City Church group can be found on Facebook by searching CBR Journal when in Facebook.

On the group page, one post will be created and posted there early each morning based on section 4 of our CBR daily Bible-reading journals. This section, "How has God impacted you the most through today's passage(s)?," will be open for comments regarding everyone's takeaway from that day's Bible reading, especially in response to question #4.

The reading and journaling can begin at any time. The journal pages are not dated so you can jump in whenever you'd like.
