Slovenian Bible reading marathon – 2017

Next Bible marathon will happen in the beginning of the year 2017. The marathon will be titled ‘I speak tenderly to you’ (Oz 2,14). Reading in Ljubljana will be five days long. We have been preparing content-rich accompanying events at St. Joseph’s center, where different guest speakers will expound various aspects of this year’s theme.

We have also connected more closely with “Slovenian [Catholic] Biblical Federation” (Slovensko biblično gibanje). The cooperation will help both organizations in our Bible mission in Slovenia. In association with “Slovenian Biblical Federation” we will be able to offer people Bible study groups. That is also a step forward in our common goal and a huge progress in connecting both movements.

We had four meetings in Autumn with the Bible marathon team and we are making progress; with our harvester Mr. Bojan Doljak we have prepared invitations and link to registration for mini marathons. We are hoping and praying that we will be able to gather over 60 locations throughout Slovenia to join with their “mini” version of the Bible reading event.

With our harvester Tanja Povšnar we are preparing accompanying program. It will be a mixture of testimonies and Bible studies.

We made a poster to invite people. With our harverster Peter Novak we will write five Bible reflections on the title and publish them on Facebook.
