The Pastor/Teacher’s Toolkit: Bible Surveys

bible survey, student, pastor, teacher, wordsearch bibleWith 66 books written at different times, by different people, and for different purposes, the Bible can be confusing even to seasoned students of Scripture. One can easily get lost in the details and lose sight of the big picture—you can read an Old or New Testament book and miss its overall themes and messages.

Merry Christmas!

christmastwitter
We hear it every year, see the nativity plays, add the star to the top of our Christmas trees. Most of us could probably recite Luke 2 in our sleep.

Mary and Joseph. The census. No room at the inn. Shepherds and angels. Jesus, wrapped in cloth and laid in the manger.

The Christmas story can become so familiar that it can lose its meaning to us. Especially surrounded by the busyness of the holidays, filled with long lists of to-dos, events, church services, family and traveling. Our focus shifts from the birth of the Lord to getting everything done on time.

No matter how you celebrate Christmas, try to find some time in the chaos to spend with Jesus. Alone, with your family or friends, at church, wherever you are, stop and take a moment to reflect on the best gift God could ever give us, the gift of His son, Jesus.

Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors! – Luke 2:14 (HCSB) 

WORDsearch wishes you a merry Christmas celebrating the birth of our Lord!

A veteran is someone who at one point in their life wrote a blank check made payable to the people of the United States of America for any amount up to and including their life.” – Lt. Col. Boyd Lackey, author with a Ph.D in psychology who spent 36 years as a military chaplain around the world, and who is also a WORDsearch user.

Veteran’s Day is a time set apart to stop and think about the people who have served the United States by fighting in wars and protecting our country throughout the years. As our way of honoring veterans today here at WORDsearch, we want to share our memories and appreciation of what they have done and what it means to us.
