Another Weekend. Another Challenge.

So we've made it to our 8th straight weekend of hospitalpalooza. Thank you guys for praying us this far. We've had a variety of challenges that you have journeyed with us through.

Here's one to last us a couple weeks.

There are times in this journey where it is really hard to pick up the Bible to find hope. It's not that I don't believe the Bible. It's not that I don't have time for the Bible. It is just that sometimes it feels like it weighs 2000 pounds when I go to pick it up. But I am convinced that God wants to teach me/us. So I'm inviting you to join me in a two week Bible challenge. I'm diving in to the book of Hebrews in the New Testament.

Some of you are like, "I've got that book memorized". Others are like "What's a Bible?" So, with that kind've mix, I think we could have a good journey. Reading the Bible might be new for you and that is absolutely fine...just give it a shot for two weeks.

A chapter a day.

I will post on what God is working in my heart for each chapter. And then you all jot down a comment of a word, a phrase, a verse, or a couple sentences of what you got out of reading it.

The goal is that we could get at least 25 comments on what God is teaching us each day for two weeks.

And when its all said and done, we will have read a book of the Bible together. We start tomorrow (Saturday).

Join the movement. Feel free to post your comment/thought/prayer each day on Facebook as well.

Excellent idea Ben! Count me in! I am a Bethel teacher and have much still to learn. God bless you as you rise to answer His call in so many ways during this exremely difficult time.

I am praying for Chaia, Grandma T., Shaina, you, Jack and family, and now my nephew Chris, age 39, who is hospitalized and will be having open heart surgery on Monday to repair a large aortic aneurism and a heart valve. His 2 year old daughter has just been declared free of any of the heart problems that have plagued her since birth and nearly took her life. God is great and in His infinite wisdom, He brings us together to work His good. Amazing God. Amazing grace.
