Bibles From Canadian Bible Society
July 24, 2010
The vast majority of Haitians are self-proclaimed Christians. More frequent than not, when you ask a Haitian adult in a literacy program why they want to learn to read and write their answer will be, “So that I can read the Bible and read hymnal when singing in church.”
Haiti Partners is grateful for our partnership with Canadian Bible Society making it possible to distribute 10,000 Bibles a year over the next three years to literacy programs, churches and schools. In addition to receiving the Bibles, people receive training in Lectio Divina, a participatory approach to Bible study and prayer where EVERY voice is valued, where pastor and person who is illiterate stand on equal ground in the group as they seek to hear God, cultivate their faith, and build unity.
