Thanks, Dad

Mike Weigand, pastor at Faith, Fond du Lac, Wis., wrote this article for the June issue of Forward in Christ:

On the bookshelf above my desk sits a copy of the book Creation from the People’s Bible Teachings series published by Northwestern Publishing House. Inside the front cover, scrawled in the barely legible handwriting that I inherited from him, is this handwritten note from my father, who wrote the book.

To Mike,

This copy is for you. May it help in providing the inspiration we all need to continue to give all glory and praise to our God for all his many gifts!


Short, straightforward, and always right to the point of why we are here: to give glory, praise, and thanks to God. That was my father.

FIC's Bible-reading plan

Trace God's story of grace in this Bible-reading plan for 2021. Participate online and you'll have access to the full Bible passages for each week. Start at any time. All the previous readings are listed at forwardinchrist.net/bible-readings-2021.

Note: Each month includes four weeks of readings. This means that there will be 48 weeks of readings in 2021 with the final four weeks of readings in January 2022. This allows readers to not fall behind if they miss a reading or two because catch-up days are built into each month. If you finish the readings for the month early, you can use Forward in Christ's devotions for a quick daily reading, re-read a favorite portion of Scripture, or spend time meditating on a more challenging portion of Scripture from that month's readings.
