You’re almost done with your BIBS books, which means you never have to read your Bible again. Wait… what?
No. J If you had another Bible plan that you were reading through before we started BIBS, feel free to go back to that. We will not be doing the tracking sheets for everyone any more.
However, if you like the BIBS format for your personal devotions, feel free to keep them up! I’ve printed up some inserts for you to add to the back of your books, if you want them. The next books of the Bible that you will study with these inserts are James, Ruth, and Philippians; and it will last you another 12 weeks (basically all Summer).
I hope you do your devotions with the same intensity and passion that you have since we started tracking. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised to see how faithful you have all been all along. It’s been awesome to come in each week and discuss your weekly devotions, and I hope you feel the personal benefit of being in God’s Word every day. I can see that it’s helped you, whether you realize it or not. Honestly. Your depth of Scripture knowledge is downright impressive, and I’ve appreciated your good comments all along. It is encouraging to see you loving God enough to want to hear from Him.
That’s what BIBS has been all about. Hearing from God. It’s never been about points or games or anything else. It’s just a tool to help you hear from God. I’ve tried to reiterate that to you many times (especially to the guys in the split sessions), and I hope it has sunk in by now.
I love you all and want this to be a blessing and a help. Keep up the good work for the next couple of weeks.
COMEDY NIGHT – We are tracking your Wednesday night attendance for CN practices in order to know how much you’ll earn from the CN proceeds. Come each week to be included in skits! We will practice weekly from about 7:55 – 8:15 (after BIBS. We will start class separared from now on.)
MORP – “Nerd Night” in 2 weeks! – $5 – We haven’t done this activity since about 1997, before some of you were born. We’re doing a backwards p-r-o-m (morp), nerd style. J Since we’re against everything—dancing, bad music, bad influences, bad associations…—we’re giving you a guilt-free alternative that’s fun without regret… the 2013 MORP! Come dressed in your best nerdy costume and you could win the grand prize. We’ll stick very tightly to a dress code that we’ll hand out later. The MORP is May 3. Please be gathering your materials… glasses, crazy tux, crazy dress etc. See the signup sheet tonight.
