YOU make BSM possible! The following may seem like only numbers, but each one represents a person & a story. One of my favorite students this year recently told me, "You know last year I only came to BSM because of the free food but the more I came the more interested I was in what you were talking about every week." Now she's got a Bible of her own, we're reading John together, & we have lengthy conversations about Jesus, faith, & church on a regular basis. They come for the free food but find so much more!

This semester I challenged BSMers to experience Lectio Divina (Latin for "Divine Reading"), which is "a traditional monastic practice of scriptural reading, meditation and prayer intended to promote communion with God and to increase the knowledge of God's word." *
We met every other Thursday & used Jan Johnson's book, Meeting God in Scripture: A Hands-On Guide to Lectio Divina, which I highly recommend!
We averaged 6-10 students each meeting but these two came every week - so I gave them their own book today after our last meditation together for the Fall of 2019. We'll pick up again in 2020!
