NATIONAL DAY OF THE BIBLE
Monday, November 19th, 2012 at noon
Held each year on the Monday of Thanksgiving Week, business, civic and religious
leaders in cities and towns in America will gather in a public place and read the Bible
publicly. In Chicago, plans are under way for area business, political and religious leaders to do this also.
In conjunction with the American Bible Society a digital media campaign is being created. Chicagoans will be encouraged through a downtown digital billboard about the value of reading the Bible.
Through the use of websites, Twitter and Facebook pages a continuing conversation about the scripture is our goal. Reaching out to Protestants and Evangelicals, in conjunction with the American Bible Society, Chicagoans will be encouraged to join the discussion about the Bible. In conjunction with the Archdiocese of the Catholic Church in Chicago, a social media outreach to Catholics will run concurrently with the one for Protestants. Pat McCaskey, one of the co owners of the Chicago Bears is involved with this project.
