I'm very excited about getting our group started. I can't wait to dive into this material with all of you.
I have set up our web-mail id. You can click here and request to join the group. The title of the Group is Living Beyond Yourself Bible Study. This will be much easier than everyone sending me their e-mail addresses and me entering them manually.
I think sometime in the next few days, once everyone has had a chance to sign-up, we will start introducing ourselves. I have a couple of friends who aren't "bloggers" (gasp, can you imagine that there are people who don't blog???) who have asked if they can join and I always think that's funny, when people ask if they can join a Bible study. I mean, wouldn't that be a little counter to what you are professing to do if you dismissed a request to study God's Word? I mean, the person who said no to that would be in serious need of some Bible study, don't you think? :)
I would like for us to all commit to having the introduction session viewed by next Wednesday, November 11. On that day, we can all just sort of start commenting and talking via the "group" and go from there. Obviously, if we set November 11 as our first week, then the 2 week date would fall the day before Thanksgiving. This is fine with me as I will not be leaving for the holiday until that Wednesday night. But if this doesn't work for everyone, we could make a three week break between the first two lessons.
I'm so excited... if you haven't gotten your id for the study yet, head on over to Lifeway.com and register so you'll be ready to go! Yay! Can't wait!
