Is it an old friend or a mysterious book that you never find time to read?
Those who regularly turn to the Bible for comfort and guidance testify to us of the great spiritual power contained within our sacred scripture. Reading the Bible can help us connect with God, grow as spiritual people, and be comforted.
If you find reading the Bible a daunting prospect, perhaps you don’t know where to start, so let me make a suggestion: The Gospel According to Matthew. I invite you to join in a congregational reading of Matthew September 7 – April 5 (Easter). We will read one chapter a week and the Sunday sermon will be on a passage from that chapter. (See reading schedule below or pick up a bookmark at church)
My hope is that doing this together will provide the support and encouragement to overcome any obstacles to reading the Bible making it less mysterious and daunting so that we may each come to know this book as a dear old friend.
