Last night was our first night back to Wednesday night Bible study at church. Our church’s Wednesday nights are focused on smaller group studies. There is a larger senior adult study, and a men’s study that meets at tables (where each table is a sort of small group) and then the women break up into different book studies.
I chose to do the Seamless study by Angie Smith. I’ve loved Angie for a long time through her blog…and I was excited to do the study. I wasn’t sure who else would be in the class as most of my close friends at church were headed different places.
But I knew this is where I needed to be. It’s a Bible study all about making the stories of the Bible tie together seamlessly. It will make connections between the Old and New Testaments and weave a thread through the entire thing. I am excited about learning.
And after last night, I’m excited about this group of women. It’s a group where I mostly don’t know people…and a few I know in passing. We have new moms, moms with teens, moms with grown kids (I’m the only one without children in there! ha!), a widow, those caring for sick parents and grandparents….a very diverse group. And I can already tell that God brought us all together to learn from each other and to learn together. It’s gonna be a good semester.
