This year for the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge I have chosen a single word for each letter of the alphabet. Each word is significant in the Bible. I shall be writing about the word, its context and retelling a story, which illustrates its importance. There may also be music.
To be completely honest, I have chosen 25 words from the Bible and one word, which describes a concept in the Bible, but is not actually used in the text. No prizes for guessing which letter was difficult!
I expect to make some discoveries as I travel through the alphabet and hope that you will be joining me, whether you have any knowledge of the Bible or not.
Links to all my 2021 A to Z posts will appear on a page, A TO Z 2021 WORDS.
The illustrations for the A to Z Challenge have been provided once again by Jeremy Hawkins, who blogs at Hollywood Nuts.
The Challenge was founded by Arlee Bird whose main blog is Tossing it Out.
For this year’s Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge I am looking at the Easter story. The Easter story might be described as the best story about Love ever told. John 10:17-18
The date when Easter is celebrated changes each year. This year Easter Day is 12th April for the western Church and 19th April for the Eastern Orthodox Church. This makes Easter topical during the challenge. (In some years it is celebrated in March.)
The whole story of Easter is told by four different writers in the New Testament of the Bible. Matthew, Mark, Luke and John describe the events from different viewpoints, writing for different readerships. The four accounts in the New Testament are Matthew 26-28, Mark 14-16, Luke 22-24, John 12-16 (Jesus teaching before his trial and execution) and John 17-21. (The central part of the Easter story and evidence for the resurrection)
I hope that you, dear reader, will read these accounts whether or not you are already familiar with them. May you know the Love, peace and joy, which Easter brings.
For each letter I am picking out one or more significant words in the story. Each post will link back to this one for the links to the passages of scripture. All the Bible references are linked to Bible Gateway
Thanks to Arlee Bird for founding the challenge and keeping it going. Also to Jeremy Hawkins for the badges and all the A to Z team.

For the A to Z in April Challenge 2019 I have picked some words, which are connected with physical space. My aim is to incorporate these words into an alphabetical rhyme along the lines of what I did in 2016.
I am also planning to add a few more prosaic words, my own photos (alongside the A to Z banners and badges designed by Jeremy Hawkins) and links to further information.
I intend to have fun and hope that you will enjoy these short posts.
I may have time to prepare some of my usual style of blog posts for Sundays in April instead of Thursdays. This post is an extra one! Themes are not mandatory for the A to Z Challenge, but I find that it is useful to have a theme and a structure.
