March (and April) Mashup, pt 1

Its been two months since I posted an update.  I've just been so swamped I haven't even had 5 minutes to write a blog!  Not.  I do apologize for not updating more in the past couple months of ministry, but I'll try and make up for it in the next couple posts.

  1. First, a thankfulness for the blessing and responsibility to teach the Bible to students.  Every Tuesday, in Weary Wil's Sports Grill in the Union, John Reiners and I met and talked about all sorts of things; how he is doing, how his devotional life was, sin, victory over sin, uncertainty about life, etc.  We also spent a significant amount of time studying Colossians.  We do what's called the "Inductive Bible study method", which (in a nutshell) is carefully observing, interpreting and applying God's Word.  My time with John this past semester was honestly some of the best time in the word
    with a student I've had in a long time.  He was/is an astute guy, eager to not jump to conclusions and humble to acknowledge what he didn't know.  Unfortunately, John is transferring to STI in Sioux Falls next year, since he got a full-ride scholarship to study automotive repair.  So, seems like a great thing for him, but I'll miss him.
