Flower Mound, a Texas city of more than 60,000, believes it can fix the world’s problems by becoming a bible-based society. Via Fox News:
The mayor of a Texas city is raising some eyebrows after he officially declared 2014 the “year of the Bible.”
Tom Hayden, the mayor of Flower Mound, made the declaration at a city council meeting last month. Hayden says he had considered making the declaration for years because he wants his community to connect through the Bible, and finally decided to do so in 2014.
“The morality that helped build our country is based on the values that are found in the Bible. And as we look at problems, maybe we’re getting away from those values,” [said Hayden].
Hayden hopes to do so by encouraging all the residents of his town to read the entire Bible together in a year. Daily passages will be posted on a website called thebible2014.com, which was created by the Calvary Chapel of Flower Mound “as a connecting point to fulfill the Mayor’s vision.”
