Experiences from Bible Sunday

“At Craigiebuckler Church in Aberdeen we regularly remember the work of the Scottish Bible Society. Recently we highlighted the work the SBS is doing in Rwanda. Bible Sunday provides an annual opportunity to speak about and support the Society’s work. It’s important that we remember that in today’s world God’s Word still brings peace and new life not only abroad but at home in Scotland. The resources SBS provide for congregations, and the projects they support, are vital in helping introduce others to the new life faith in Jesus brings us.”

Revd Kenneth L Petrie

Craigiebuckler Church

“Every Sunday is Bible Sunday and the Bible forms a central part in worship services and personal devotion. But holding a special Bible Sunday reminds people that everyone needs to regularly read the Bible in order to know God through Jesus Christ and to understand what God requires of us, the blessings that await those who obey his Word, and the consequences for those who disobey. It is good to tell the congregation that many people in the world don’t have easy access to a Bible and a Bible Sunday is a great way to celebrate our freedom to read and to use our Bibles and also to explain how the Scottish Bible Society can provide Bibles to many parts of our world today, where Christians find difficulty in getting a Bible.”
