    Baseball All-Star Invites Fans to Read Through Bible with Him, 13,000 Join

    One of Major League Baseball’s best pitchers is reading through the Bible in a single year – and he’s inviting everyone to take the journey with him.

    Adam Wainwright, a veteran pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals, told his Twitter followers last week that he would begin reading selections each day from the Old and New Testaments and Psalms on Jan. 12 as part of an endeavor to read through God’s Word in one year. 

    He also set up a Twitter account dedicated to the effort and invited fans to read with him. Thus far, 13,500 have followed his new account Walking With Waino, where he posts updates about the daily readings.

    “This is a cool opportunity for me to walk through God’s Word in community with you,” he wrote. “It’s my prayer that this would be a blessing and a daily encouragement to you all.”

    Hey guys, I am so glad y’all joined this group. This is a cool opportunity for me to walk through God’s Word in community with you. It’s my prayer that this would be a blessing and a daily encouragement to you all. I can’t wait to start on January 12th! – https://t.co/4SnW3Z1YuY
