Have you always wanted to read the Bible in its entirety but never gotten around to it? Drum roll, please… 2020 Bible Challenge starts on January 1st!! All you need is your Bible, reading plan, and maybe your reading glasses. What we are committing to do this year is very simple – we will read our Bibles from the beginning to the end.
Rev. Frank Schaefer was a United Methodist minister in a small Pennsylvania town until he was put on trial in the Church for officiating the same-sex wedding of his eldest son, Tim.
