Emanuel helps spread the ‘good news’



Did you notice a gathering at the Emanuel County Courthouse last Wednesday? A group of readers and listeners were on hand July 14 at 7:14 a.m. for the 3rd Annual Statewide Bible Reading.


Brad McKenzie, leader of Jesus Saves Church, was one of the speakers. He explained this year’s effort was carried out by 16 states and 57 countries, an expansion from the amount of states and countries that participated last year. Every Georgia county participated this year as well.


“It was an honor to join in with all 159 counties in the state of Georgia in participation to do our part in reading the entire Bible this morning. Each county was assigned a portion of the Bible to read. Emanuel County was assigned nine chapters to read, Joel 1 through Amos 6. It took about 45 minutes in total to complete the reading divided up among five men: myself, David Mosely, Delmus Scott, Gerald Suttkus, and Roy Brantley,” McKenzie said. “In a world filled with bad news, the Word of God—the Gospel, the power of God unto salvation to all who believe—is the good news. Again, what an honor to play a part in such a huge undertaking and sharing of the Good News right here in our hometown of Swainsboro.”


The theme of this year’s statewide Bible reading drew from 2 Chronicles 7:14, which says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
