SO CRAZY EXCITED!
With all the activities and travel and sunshine of summer, it can be a challenge to stay in the groove of staying in the Word. That's why I'm so, so, so excited to offer an online option for you for the summer.
And then this...
It's called The Footnotes and it's fresh off the digital press!
Here's the deets.
I go to the grocery store. I answer the emails. I drop off the kids and then I pick them back up. I reload the washing machine. I finish a project at work just to begin another one. In the repetition and minutiae of it all, I sometimes have to wonder. Does it all count toward something? Will it make a difference? Can God use it? Over seven billion people currently live on this globe and an estimated one hundred eight billion people have passed this way over time. It's understandable that we would stand back on occasion and question if we will leave a legacy, if we really will be able to speak into future lives. Or will we be just a footnote in a list somewhere?
There are about thirty-three hundred specific people mentioned in the Bible and of those, many are just one-liners, anonymous or a passing mention. In our study Bibles, they're often just a footnote in the margin. And yet, if we're willing to look a little deeper, their lives have many lessons to teach. The Footnotes, my newest online, free Bible study, will take a closer look at some of the stories and people you may have breezed by in the past. The footnotes I call The Reputation, The Bridge, The Wrestler, The Messenger, The Heckler and The Career are people who didn't make a best-known list, but their lives still speak in to ours today. We'll cover some hidden history, take a look at fascinating facts and learn how to apply the lessons of The Footnotes to our lives today. Join me for a six week study that will sharpen your sleuthing skills and heighten your awareness of some of the 'smaller' stories of the Bible while gaining insight for living today.
Each week, you'll receive an email with the link for the newest video lesson and a pdf file with listening guide, discussion questions and guided journaling for the week. You can take it at your own pace, from wherever your summer plans take you. We'll also weave in some interesting local history as well.
We'll launch June 28th, 2015, and you'll have access to that week's video lesson and study guide pdf to do on your time, whether on the road, poolside or on the run. If you'd like to do it as a small group study with your friends, awesome! You can customize it to work with your summer schedule. Can't wait to show you some of the amazing people and hidden stories from the Bible, around the Austin area and even a little something from my ancestors. Sign up today!
