2019 Assembly Resolution 16
Relating to: recognizing Thanksgiving week as National Bible Week in Wisconsin.
Whereas, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt first declared National Bible Week in 1941; and
Whereas, at the time, the National Bible Association read passages on the air at NBC between radio broadcasts; and
Whereas, National Bible Week encourages us to read the Bible; and
Whereas, Bible reading has been a great encouragement and comfort for many people throughout our state's history and has contributed to the molding of the spiritual, moral, and social fiber of our citizenry; and
Whereas, the nation continues to observe Sunday to Sunday of the week of Thanksgiving as National Bible Week; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the
assembly, That: the Wisconsin Assembly recognizes the week of Thanksgiving 2019 as National Bible Week in Wisconsin.
