Pastor, First Presbyterian Church
“Worship is a habit,” says Dr. Jim Miller, Pastor of Tulsa’s First Presbyterian Church. “So is reading the paper.”
“My routine is to start the day with a cup of coffee, then a brief devotional, then another cup of coffee, then the Tulsa World. I read it all in less than 30 minutes. It’s amazing how, over time, you become educated about your community in that 30 minutes a day,” says Jim.
“The World serves as a watchdog for the community,” he adds. “If the watchdog’s barking, we’d better listen – and act. It’s how the community protects the common good.”
Why does this pastor always read the business section? “It’s all related. In our community of faith, I need to know what’s impacting people in their vocational lives. If airline employees are getting pink slips, that affects me. It affects all of us,” he says.
“In an age of multiple media outlets where there’s no editing, it’s refreshing that the Tulsa World has a team of editors sifting through, focusing on what we need to know. For local news, nothing else is as helpful and clarifying as the Tulsa World. It’s a gift to the community.”
Make it a habit. Read the Tulsa World and tulsaworld.com, every day. Better yet, post this ad on your fridge at home or at the office so others will read it, too!
