I got a church newsletter today encouraging its members to Read Thru the Bible in 2007. We tried that the first year I was here and only two people actually did it — and I was not one of them! I did pretty well until about August, got hopelessly behind and never caught up. I actually confessed this to my congregation, which was a real encouragement to the 100+ folks who “failed” like I did. However, that missed the point of actually getting people to read the Bible. So, in 2006, we tried a new approach, which really worked!
