LA TRINIDAD, Benguet: Recognizing the importance of the Bible as a source of life-giving principles from where core moral and spiritual values emanate, municipal officials of this capital town set the last week of January as Bible Week. The La Trinidad Bible Week is embodied in Municipal Ordinance 28-2016. It is authored by Councilor Roderick Awingan who expressed that the Bible, if read, meditated on and obeyed, can transform lives and the country for the better. Celebration of the Bible Week seeks to introduce the transforming power of God’s word through all means possible like creating activities inculcating awareness and understanding of the importance of the Scriptures in nation-building. It will also encourage the opening of the Bible where values from the Word of God are embedded. Among the suggested activities are overnight prayer rally/meeting, Bible quiz, poster-making contest, inter-church parade or motorcade, display of posters, Bible reading and symposia; distribution of Scripture selections or booklets and preaching to prison inmates, patients in hospital, public markets and transport terminals; and holding of sports events to raise Bible awareness, Bible reading program or Gospel sharing.
