This is the Year of the Bible for St. John UMC.
God has challenged us to read through the Bible in a Year.
In order to do that we gave out a Reading Plan for a year.
We offered Disciple Bible Study on Sunday nights which takes you through the Bible.
We offered on Wednesday nights a Bible Study to follow through the Bible reading plan.
I am preaching sermons that go through the Bible for the year.
I made a plan that everyone would be on the same sheet of music, and that the sermons would fall in line with the readings. You know what they say about best laid plans of Mice and men/women. I forgot about the orientation session of the Disciple Bible Study and then the next session introducing the Bible. So the Disciple Bible Study group is just starting their reading of Genesis. We had a death in the church and the visitation fell on Wednesday night, so we delayed the start of their study. They start this week with a study of the first readings in Genesis.
I am already through the second set of readings as far as preaching goes.
My point in keeping these all together was that I was teaching, preaching and reading. Umm help I think I need another teacher or something or a reprieve or something. Any suggestions?
God is this your plan? You got any ideas, God?
