Ways to Make 2012 the 'Year of the Word'

" For some years now I have read through the Bible twice every year. If you picture the Bible to be a mighty tree and every word a little branch, I have shaken every one of these branches because I wanted to know what it was and what it meant." ~Martin Luther

In his January church newsletter article, Pastor Merrill challenged us to make this year the "Year of the Word," by resolving to spend more time reading, studying and learning about the Bible. Obviously attending worship services, Sunday school, confirmation, prayer and Bible study groups are all wonderful opportunities to do this, but so are personal Bible reading and personal or family devotional time.

Here are some links that you can use to help you spend time shaking "every little branch" of the "mighty tree" that is God's Word:
Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” ~John 8:31-32
