We are running low on pew bibles. Since new bibles will be ordered, this is a good time to consider purchasing a new translation. Currently, the pew bibles are the New International Version (NIV). In 2012, a new translation came out called the Common English (CEB). You may have heard pastor Theresa read from this translation in worship. Check out this link for reasons why CEB is appealing. Two simple reasons are: 1) it is easy to understand and 2) it was a broader cooperative translating effort among ecumenical denominations.
If you have any questions or comments, please ask pastor Theresa or pastor John.
