I have always enjoyed reading. From my childhood years, reading has been something that I have valued. It often provided an escape from reality for me during some difficult times growing up. This love for reading has been a driving force in my years of ministry. It also served me well in the five and a half years that I worked in the public library.
Whether you like to read or not, I want to encourage you to read the Bible this year. As the first week of the New Year draws to a close, it is worth noting that 2020 has been declared “The Year of the Bible.”
