The Book of the Law - Halftime Report

In the past six months we've covered more than half of the Book of the Law. Leviticus has been grueling indeed. If we met every single week, this process would be much easier. As it stands, though, we have decided to take a break from the Book of the Law. Meeting every other week, including a couple of schedule interruptions, has brought our progress to a grinding halt. We will most likely not meet again for our study until the first week of January - what with the holidays and all that. Even then, we need a break from the Book of the Law. When we reconvene in January, we will shake things up a bit with some topical discussion. Well, we're going to give it a try at least.

For each meeting we will bring a pre-prepared question/topic to the table for discussion and investigation. Pre-prepared means that each of us will have done whatever research is pertinent concerning the topic at hand. I offered two resources as a guide for our group in brainstorming some good questions:

  1. gotquestions.org - Got Questions is a great site and resource for any spiritual/Biblical/religious/church question you may have.

  2. askanything.org - The site set up by Mars Hill Church in Seattle so that anyone could ask Mark Driscoll any question and he would answer it through his preaching in 2008.

So, come January 2008, we'll see how it goes. As always, the invitation is open for anyone to join us. And if anyone would like to give us a topic for discussion, feel free. We will most likely continue to meet every other week on Sunday nights, though we may change it to Friday nights so we can light a bonfire.

Is there some kind of strange Florida law that prohibits bonfires on Sunday evenings?

sitting around a bonfire is like going to Vegas. you lose all sense of time. we have a tendancy to stay up talking until 3 or 4 am around a bonfire.

Hence, Sunday night - a work night - is not a good idea to be staying up late at all.

my bed time is 10 pm.

CERTAIN people lose all concept of the passage of time when sitting about a bonfire. Others of us aren't quite so drawn to/enamored of the bonfire.
If I'm staying up to 3 or 4 it's for one thing and one thing only and it isn't a bonfire ;)
I know. I'm such a killjoy.

The Bonfire last week was great as usual. I really like the forum for conversation it allows. I might just come a little earlier next time to hear the thoughts on the book of law. (Just Curious)

The Mike Corley Program asks: "What would you ask Mark Driscoll?"
