OUR OPINION: The Times begins new contest tomorrow

Published 12:00 am Thursday, August 16, 2007

In tomorrow&8217;s edition, a new feature will appear &8212; the Bible Verse Contest &8212; and we hope everyone will participate.

The Bible Verse Contest is a popular feature that runs in newspapers across the nation. Each week, we will provide a Bible verse and a hint as to where in the Bible it can be found. Contestants are asked to identify three verses and send their answers to us.

Then, the following week, we will announce a winner, who will receive a free Bible.

This is a great contest for Sunday school classes, who usually donate the Bibles to either missionaries or the less fortunate.

We encourage families to take a few minutes each week and do this with their children. It&8217;s a great way to spend a little time reading the Bible.
