President Bugbee blesses the Bibles of those committing to daily Bible reading.

SASKATOON – Lutheran Church–Canada President Robert Bugbee traveled to Saskatoon January 13 to give a passionate talk at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on the importance of immersing oneself daily in the Word of God.

President Bugbee noted the challenges that Christians increasingly face in a society moving increasingly toward secularism and paganism. He stressed that Christians need to stay connected to God through His Scriptures, ensuring that faith receives the nourishment God offers through His Word.

Seventy-five people attended the presentation, and more than 70 committed to daily reading of God’s Word, either through the Today’s Light Bible reading program or another program like it. The congregation was inspired to try a daily reading program after hearing about the experiences of Lutheran congregations in Winnipeg. By using the Today’s Light schedule, participants will read through the entire Bible in two years by reading 15 minutes a day.

Regular encouragement via the church Facebook site keeps participants involved and on track.
