After the Rush…

13 May

This is the name of our Bible Study group. We named it this because it takes place on a Friday after the craziness of the week. We meet at about 6:15 pm and share a meal (which we usually take turns bringing). I make pizza for the kids. That was the appealing thing about our study, everyone could bring their kids and my kids watch them while we are having our Bible discussions.  Our group consists of 10 adults and 14 kids, with 10 of those kids being under 9 years old!  My kids are great to do this for the study group.

We have been meeting for two years. The first two studies we did revolved around books. The first was John 3:16 by Max Lucado.  This was a good introductory study since many of us did not know the others very well.  It brought us to a level of comfort and trust with the others in the group.

The next book we read was Irresistable Revolution by Shane Claiborne.  That book really got us thinking about how we can serve God where we are and how important it is to live the faith that we profess.

Now we have decided to move right to the Bible (something no one was comfortable with when the group first began).  We are studying the book of Romans.  This is a really thought-provoking book and constantly reminds me of how much I need salvation in Jesus Christ.  I love the fact that I can read the same Bible (different copy, but you know what I am saying!!) that I have been reading for the last 20 years of my life and still find new insights.  Praise God!!
