The News

It seemed to many gathered at Ford Arena on Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, that Bicycles and Bibles, an annual event, might just have been a little extra special this year. For some reason the spirit of the crowd gathered inside the big arena seemed to radiate a need to be together, to be whole, to be happy, and to understand the wonder of being blessed during this Christmas Season. Kids often said, “Thank you,” to passing strangers, and one could sense they meant it deeply.
