Give it to Me, Chapter and Verse

March 11th, 2016 · No Comments · Faith and the City

I have a question for you.

It’s the same question voters are putting to Presidential candidates at town hall meetings. It is a question that pastors get asked all the time. It is a question that a college chaplain posed to me sometime during my sophomore year.

John 3:16What is your favorite passage of Scripture?

What few verses from the Good Book most inspire you? Comfort you? Guide you? What verse is tattooed on your heart, or scrawled on a note card tucked in the corner of your bathroom mirror? What passage from the Bible gives you direction and hope?

I really want to know.

You see, your clergy have a plan. After Easter, we are going to start a 10-week sermon series on FAPC’s favorite verses. We’re calling it For the Bible Tells Me So.

To throw your two cents in, click on this link and tell us three things: 1) your name, 2) your favorite passage, and 3) a sentence or two about why it is your favorite. We’ll sort them and do the rest.

One of my twisted colleagues has already suggested that we turn this around next year and ask for your least favorite passages. We’ll see! For now, send us the verses closest to your heart, and we will go to work!

See you in worship,
