“International Day of the Bible,” an event organized by a number of Bible ministries, will take place this Monday, November 23. 


The Christian Post reports that the American Bible Society, Bible Gateway, Scripture Union, YouVersion, Bibles for the World, and the National Bible Association have all united to coordinate the annual event.


Elise Inman, spokeswoman for the National Bible Association stated,"We believe that setting aside a day to honor God's word gives Christians a chance to show solidarity despite differing backgrounds, denominations, and political beliefs.”


Many different events are slated to take place on Monday, including public readings of Scripture.


"Other ideas include breaking into a flash mob, singing and dancing Scripture, painting or drawing a picture with a few lines of verse, or capturing God's creations in photos, selfies included, and sharing them along with a beloved Psalm,” said a statement about the event.


Some events have already taken place, such as “a public Bible reading at the Capitol” that took place Tuesday.


The Christian Post reports that observance of “International Day of the Bible” is growing, and Inman has said that "We are also expanding our social media outreach by launching a devotional study through Youversion and coordinating more social media outreach with our partner organizations."
