World Teacher’s Day

World Teacher’s Day occurs once a year on October 5 starting 1994 in honor of teachers’ associations all over the world. The goal was to create support for teachers and to see that the needs of the generations in the future would still be met by teachers. Sunday School teachers are equally important. They provide knowledge, support, and wisdom about the Bible.

With the Industrial Revolution, numerous children were working all week long in factories.

But Sunday School itself has a very important history that started in the 1780s where a movement was beginning to provide more poor children with the chance to learn how to read.

With the Industrial Revolution, numerous children were working all week long in factories. For many years, work hours extended through most of the day. Eventually, the average work day was taken down to 12 hours for children in 1802. Considering that Saturday during those times was also considered a part of the work week, Sunday became the only day in which these children could learn.

Happy World Teacher’s Day!

What do you (Christians) want (give) for Christmas?


Some of us are gift-challenged so we end up falling back on ties and gift cards.  Can you help us come up with some ideas?

What kinds of gifts that reflect your love of Christ do you want for Christmas?  What are you giving to others that reflect their love of Christ?

Is it music?  A book?  A subscription to a Christian magazine?  Our timeline (yes!)  Artwork? To attend a workshop by a favorite pastor/minister/teacher?

Any and all price ranges would be helpful.  Specific product names best of all.

To show our appreciation, we’ll put together a list of the suggestions you posted in our Thanksgiving Newsletter and on this blog to help all you other gift-challenged people too.

What gifts are you hoping to get/giving that reflect your love of Christ?

5 Tips To Jumpstart Your Bible Reading Habit

Ever gotten so busy you suddenly realize it’s been days (weeks?) since you’ve opened your Bible at home for personal study? It can be hard to get started again.  Especially if I’m still overwhelmed with whatever changed my routine in the first place.

Here are five tips I use to get me going again.

  1. Put the Bible in the bathroom. No matter what’s happening in my life I’m going to brush my teeth.  I hold the toothbrush in one hand, the Bible in the other and start reading.
  2. Put the Bible in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator.  As I’m poking through looking for a “quick snack” I’ll realize the best snack would be to feast on the words of God.
  3. Find my Bible on CD or cassette tape (or buy it if you don’t have it already. I bet it’s available for Ipods)  I stick it in the car player all ready to go on my next dash to work or for an errand.  A wonderful way to calm down and remember God is still in his heaven and all is right with the world.
  4. Put a small version in my purse.  I don’t know what a guy would do but that’s the advantage of having a purse.  Next time I’m stuck in a waiting room or long line I pull it out and start reading.
  5. Use my insomnia.  When life’s that busy I’m often wide awake with churning thoughts at 4 AM.  Reading the Bible soothes me back to sleep.

Best of all?  Once I start reading I want to read more and more.  Soon I’ve made it a regular part of my routine again.  Just that bit of jump-start recharges my spiritual batteries enough to keep me returning again and again to the source.

What about you?

How do you restart a Bible reading habit when a sudden change in routine has broken it?

How do you keep up your Bible reading habit when you’re traveling? That’s where I really fall down.
