What was the last good book that you read from cover to cover?  What was it about the book that kept you engaged?  Did you read the book for pure enjoyment or was it required reading for work or school?  Did you read it by yourself or was it read by others at the same time?  Was it fiction or non-fiction?  Was type of book was it – action, drama, romance, etc.?  We read books for different reasons.

Now, let me ask you this question… When did you last read the Good Book from cover to cover?  Some people refer to the Bible as the Good Book.  Many people have never read this book from cover to cover.  Most people only hear excerpts from it during worship or in Bible studies.  There are many sections of the Bible that many people have never heard read or read themselves.  The Bible is filled with all types of stories, after all it is a collection of smaller books that were written by many people over a very long period.

We believe that the Scriptures are “the inspired word of God.”  That means that the various writers and those who penned the oral traditional stories were inspired by God to record what was written, much the same as when a pastor prepares a sermon.  This collection of stories and writings is the salvation story for the world.  When we read from the Scriptures, the Holy Spirit enlightens us and inspires us.  Through the readings, God comes closer to us, and our faith is strengthened.

By the end of February, we will be 1/3 of the way through the Bible!  You have made it through one of the most challenging parts of the Bible.  Some of the stories were difficult to read and you may have wondered why such stories are included in the Bible – what purpose do they serve?  Other stories from the Bible may have caused you to have an “Aha Moment” where you now understand something that you never really grasped before.  Wrestling with the stories, reflecting on the events, and hearing familiar messages strengthen our faith.

When we gather on Zoom, we discuss the many ways in which the readings have affected our thoughts and faith. These check-ins are an opportunity to discuss our thoughts, impressions, and faith.  Our upcoming Zoom check-ins are February 20, March 6, March 20, April 3, April 17 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.  The Zoom link information is:
