16 Apr 2020 • From Bishop Richard Jackson
In his fourth weekly video message, Bishop Richard encourages us to read and enjoy the Bible more during this time of Coronavirus lockdown.
He says: 'The illumination of the heart, soul and mind through the Scriptures isn't a sterile, intellectual activity. I've been a Christian for over 40 years, and I still find almost daily things leap from the page at me in ways I hadn't seen before.'
He continues: 'I think it was Mark Twain who said: "It's not the bits of the Bible that I don't understand that give me problems, it's the bits I do!" '
Bishop Richard suggests: 'In our lockdown, if you're unsure where to start, read a Gospel. Mark's is a great place to start.'
