A summer would not be complete without the opportunity to jump off a diving board and do a massive cannonball into a pool. Reading the Bible is very much like jumping into a pool. There is a huge difference between dipping your toes in and doing a cannonball. We will be exploring some ways that we can dive into scripture and discover how it can have a huge impact on our lives.
