Let’s read the Bible together this summer! Join this summer’s Bible Reading Plan, Genesis Generations, which begins on Sunday, July 2, and concludes Saturday, July 17. There are several ways to participate.


  • Subscribe here to receive a daily email in your inbox. (If you’d like to subscribe after July 1, please email Catherine Fink to be added to the list.)
  • Watch this homepage for daily posts.
  • Listen to the daily podcast series available from the synod’s LibSyn or wherever you get your podcasts.
  • Read through the printed compilation.


  • Consider the questions for reflection that accompany each devotional reading.
  • Engage with your friends, family, or small group.
  • How are the Scripture passages and devotional readings showing you God anew each day?


  • New this year: create! Come along on an artistic journey of response by creating your own visio divina of one or more of the daily devotions.
  • The God of creation has made us beings with the capacity for creation. How do your reading and reflection lead you to respond? Color, paint, sculpt, build, sketch—any medium; every ability.
  • Share in your congregation. Gather and showcase artistic responses from all ages: perhaps as a narthex display or bulletin board!
  • Share with the synod. You may submit a photo of your creation so that it can be shared widely across the synod. Complete this form and upload here.
  • Share with the world. Post your creative response on Facebook or Instagram. #2023GenesisCreations @ncsynod
  • Complete your creation and share by July 31. Remember: it’s a creation, not a competition!
