"Coming to fruition..." Every once in a while I get a glimpse of ripening fruit after a year of planting new ministry. Today, was one of those days. It was a day filled with the potential of new ministry partnership because of the diligent work of a faithful volunteer. A day when a campus relationship (which I'd been praying for) was forged. Topping off the day was our FREE LUNCH experience. Our "Questions of the Day" was: "How do YOU know the Bible is relevant?" We talked about how you really cannot have an opinion of the relevance of Scripture unless you are actively spent time reading it. We talked about how the 1st century church (while not having "preachers designated" to share insight from Scripture) would spend time sharing Scripture with each other that had been meaningful in their life.
I challenged students to share Scripture that had been meaningful in their own journey and then share why it had been meaningful. What followed was a sweet time of peers sharing Scripture and life lessons with each other. They seemed to just be getting warmed up when it was time to wrap up. With a request continue the conversation during next weeks lunch, many students hung around for 15-20 min's after lunch still talking an sharing with each other.
