Bible Sunday

Brenda Dyble led the service explaining about the history of the British and Foreign Bible Society. I spoke for a few minutes on the theme of "My life through my Bibles".

  • my first Testament Newydd (New Testament in Welsh) presented to me at my confirmation
  • "The Way" — a Living Bible which my sister gave to me when I left home for University. I gave it straight back and then discovered later that she had hidden it in my suitcase!
  • The Jeens Family Bible of which I became joint custodian on my marriage to Steve in 1980
  • An assortment of Children's Bible Stories which I used at a Sunday School in East London and now at the Stay and Play Group in Halmer End
  • My father's Bible which was presented to him on his safe return from the war by his chapel in Holyhead, which I am honoured to have following my father's death in January this year
    Other members of the congregation brought along their Bibles and told their stories.
