Not much time to blog today. First there was school all morning, followed by a stock-up run to the big box store for paper goods and peanut butter (will all the apples in the house there has been a run on peanut butter as everyone really likes it on apples), and now I need to prepare for the group of girls who are heading to my house in about an hour.
For the past three years, I have led a girls' Bible study, starting out with M. and her friends. Nearly all of them have moved on and I am on to the next generation, so to speak. These are younger sisters of the original group plus a couple of other friends. It has been a wonderful experience getting to watch these girls grow and mature in young ladies.
And this is a serious Bible study, so is good for me as well. Last year we worked our way through I and II Kings and this year we are diving into Isaiah. That's right, I will be spending my Tuesday afternoons leading a group of 13 to 17 year old girls through Isaiah. (As I said, it is good for me as well.) The reaction from the girls has been very positive. They like studying something 'real' and have been filled with good questions and observations.
All this could lead me into a nice long rant about our American tendency to feed pablum to our young people, but I don't have time. Sorry.
