Community Bible Study: an ending

My first year in Community Bible Study
is over. I enjoyed it, my kids loved it. We all made friends that will
last for years, Lord willing. So you can imagine my surprise when the
leadership announced Thursday that the class would not continue in the
fall.

Why? No proper teaching director, declining attendance, and the
church where the group met for years, could no longer play host, I was
told.

I have yet to tell my kiddos.

There is another group that meets just a bit north of me, but from
what I hear, the home schooler’s class is difficult to get into (with a
waiting list - that should tell you something!) I’ve sent in the
registration, so we’ll see what happens.

Next Thursday is our “share day,” when we gather for brunch and look
back at our year together. There were tears the other day; I’m sure
there will more sadness next week.

I’m really bummed about this, to be honest with you. I learned so
much about those neglected Old Testament books, prophets and stories
that we Christians tend to just skim over because it’s the old part of the story, know what I mean?

But what I’ve learned about obedience and faithfulness and how not
to treat our relationship with God. Dang, I’m gonna miss this group of
ladies. This is definitely one of those “Why, God?” moments.
