a Biblical thought...
"As surely as you live, my lord, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the LORD. 27 I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. 28 So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD." And he worshiped the LORD there. (1 Samuel 1:27-28)
a Book thought...
If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sure sign you’re not trying anything very innovative. (p114)
a Dave thought...
Just when I thought I’d heard of most of the innovative discipleship ideas for youth, yesterday over lunch I was made aware by our very own TC’s of a USA initiative called Bible Bowl.
Bible Bowl is a ministry for youth in grades 6 to 12 which combines Bible study with Christian competition and fellowship. The purpose is to give youth a firm foundation for their faith through the systematic study, memorization, and application of Scripture. Each season, a designated portion of Scripture is chosen as the study text. Weekly practices consist of learning and applying the designated text, devotions, quizzing, plus lots of fun and fellowship. From October to May, local competition is held monthly. Teams of 3 to 6 players compete against teams from other churches, Christian schools, or home-schooling associations. The season culminates with the National Bible Bowl Youth Conference held in late June or early July. http://www.biblebowl.net/AboutWelcome.aspx
