I am very excited to get back into BSF this year and the structure it provides. I am also very excited about the “kinder and gentler” structure of BSF. We see this right off the bat in the childrens program. In years past there was a heavy focus on going over guidelines the first night. This year we jump right into fellowship and interactive discussions about the bible, Genesis, the BSF study, etc. Later in the first night we discuss, together, standards that we (leaders and students together) want to have for the class this year. There is involvement, input, engagement and participation right from the start.
Most importantly, I am very excited about studying Genesis. God’s word is so amazing. There is a depth and richness in it that seems to flower the more I mature. There is truly a beauty that, while there on the surface, becomes even more beautiful as we look deeper. It is good.
My plan is to post as I did last year (although with a bit more regularity and simplicity). I would like to do my lesson daily and post my lecture notes each week
