January 4, 2013
Our dear church family member Joanna Weber would want us to know that it is a a new year… and a new start.
Unlike all the doubters and naysayers of New Year’s Resolutions, I’m all for them. Sure, we may not make it all the way through the year. Sure, we may not achieve all that we hope. But by the power of the Holy Spirit and with firm faith in the promises of God, we can have a new start any day of the year. Why not on January 1st or even today, January 4? God’s mercies are new every morning; great is His faithfulness.
With that being said, I want to drop one last encouragement to jump into a Bible Reading Plan in 2013 . You may choose to read through the Bible. If you’re looking for ideas on where to start, click this link to see 3 different reading plans (http://cornerstone-marion.
If you are looking for a less daunting plan, I’m also providing a plan that goes through May 2013 that has about one to two chapters of Bible reading per day (think 5-10 minutes of reading per day). Available online here: http://cornerstone-
And don’t forget…the goal of Bible reading is not information but life transformation!
Some quick announcements…
