DABAR PROJECT ד ב ר
A year of Grace, letting yourself penetrate to the heart by the Word of God, which will transform you.
IT IS NOT ABOUT KNOWING THE BIBLE IN ORDER TO LOVE IT. LOVE IT SO YOU CAN KNOW IT.
Pope Francis addressing the CCR, Olympic Stadium in Rome 2014:
“In the early days, they used to say that you charismatics always carried around a Bible, the New Testament… Do you still carry one today? [the crowd:] Yes! – I’m not so sure! If not, return to this first love, and always carry the word of God in your pocket or bag! And read a bit of it. Keep the word of God with you always.”
This DABAR Project offers you a direct contact with DABAR ELOHIM, the Word of God, for you to hear it, to believe it, to live it and to fall in love with it.
Animator: José H Prado Flores – Member of CHARIS International Service of Communion

Duration: One year
A. BIBLICAL MARATHON
Personal reading of the Word according to one’s own rhythm.
The reading of the Word always begins with an invocation to the Holy Spirit.
CHARIS will offer a chart that will be filled with colours according to the readings done.
On 17 April 2022, Easter Sunday, the participants will present it and CHARIS will show the charts of the readings.
B. SCHEDULED READING FOR EACH DAY OF THE YEAR
Every day, week and month CHARIS offers through its web page, social networks or participants’ email the list of the corresponding readings.
All the subscribers will receive a calendar by e-mail with the reading of all the books of the Holy Scripture for each day.
C.“FIX MY WORDS…”: MEMORISING THE WORD
“These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts.” Dt 6:6
CHARIS offers a Bible text to memorise every Wednesday via the social networks.
Suggestion: each participant transcribes the text published in several “post it”, which are placed in different spaces (computer screen, mirror, dining room, their wallet, etc.).
D .“IN SEASON AND OUT OF SEASON…” (CF. 2TIM 4:2)
Share the Word once a month with a person or your community.
E. “WORD MOSAIC”
Each participant sends CHARIS his or her favourite text, phrase or verse from the Bible: email@example.com
CHARIS will draw up a mosaic in which the richness of the Word of God shines through (cf. Col 3:16).
This Mosaic will be published on 5 June 2022, feast of Pentecost, on CHARIS’ social media, without showing the names of the participants.
F. “ENTHRONEMENT OF THE WORD AT PENTECOST 2022”
Those who have participated in previous phases of the DABAR project will receive by mail a mini-manual to enthrone the Bible in their home or office.
LET THE WHOLE GREAT CHARISMATIC FAMILY PUT THE BIBLE IN A PLACE OF HONOUR: IN THEIR HOMES, IN THEIR PREACHING AND IN THEIR LIVES.
