To help remind people of the true meaning of Christmas, YouVersion is leading an effort to make the Bible as visible as possible during this season. We’ve set Saturday, December 25, as Global Share the Bible Day. We’d be honored if you would join us.

The idea is to get as many people as possible talking about the Bible leading up to—and especially on—December 25. We’re asking people to engage others in everyday conversations, to send tweets, to update their Facebook status, and even to highlight it on pages on their websites. (And those who spread the word ahead of time might just enjoy an extra gift this year: Their choice of an iPad, an iPhone 4, or a Nexus S!)

We’ve suggested ideas as simple as sharing what God has done in your life, sharing your favorite verse, and sharing about the Christmas story. We’re hoping that if people will use the hash tag #Bible, we can build some momentum online.

We’re also asking people to consider telling others how they can get the Bible for free through the Bible App. (We specifically designed it to make it easy for believers to share both their faith and how they’re using YouVersion, so we hope that will help people participate.)

Please prayerfully consider joining us, speaking to your circles of influence, and encouraging others to spread the word building up to—and especially on—that day. We’d love your help to draw as much attention to the Bible as we can on December 25.

What you can do now:

What you can do on Christmas day:

  • Share the Bible in your social media spaces (using #Bible on Twitter) and with the people you know.
