Thank God for Wycliffe

My oldest daughter is working as an intern at Wycliffe Bible translators in the UK. recently she posted a blog about John Wycliffe. It is worth reading because often we are complacent about the Bible we are able to read without appreciating the great sacrifice of men like Wycliffe who lived and died so that we might have the Scriptures in our own language.

It’s still not too late…

…to start your Bible reading plan for 2011. Reading the whole Bible in a year is a challenge but also a great blessing. So don’t be put off by the fact we are a few days into the new year, get started now! There are loads of free one year Bible reading programmes online, (I use the ESV with readings from OT, NT, Psalm and Proverbs), but in case you need help here are a few to get you started;
