A town’s effort to read Bible
Everywhere Greg Nance goes on Signal Mountain these days, somebody is talking about reading the Bible.
He’s heard about it being talked up in beauty salons, at fitness centers and in doctors’ offices.
In Signal Mountain, most churches committed recently to urge their members to read the Bible from cover to cover in 90 days, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reported.
“I wish we (Christians) were all one family,” said Nance, minister at Signal Mountain Church of Christ and the catalyst behind the idea.
“If there’s any one thing that’s going to pull us together, it’s finding that common ground,” he told the Times Free Press. “The Bible is that common ground — reading and sharing and talking about what God says. There is no better way for God to work to bring us into unity.”
The effort began Sept. 1 and will continue through the end of November.
The idea is that each participant would read 12 pages a day in a specially selected Bible and gather with fellow readers once a week for insight, accountability, fellowship and encouragement.
