16 ways of developing good bible reading habits

How’s your quiet time/daily devotional/time spent with God and in His word?
Whichever way you want to ask that question, yes, we should invest in time with God on a regular basis. And truth is, many of us struggle. Many of us don’t know which of the many resources to choose (why is there just so many out there?!) I don’t know about some of you, but I really like to see what resources are out there, I like to peruse and check out new devotional stuff, check out old devotional stuff, explore and see which methods work (or which methods I’m not keen on).

Refugee Crisis Goods Donation Christmas Appeal

With Europe facing its worst refugee crisis since World War 2, many charities and groups are asking for help with the recent influx of refugees requiring aid, be it financial donations or through goods being donated. Project Tom is a charity we have been in communication with in previous years, and this year for Christmas, they have asked us to get on board with their Refugee Crisis Christmas appeal for donated goods.

iD commitment

So with the summer long gone and with school having been going on for a few weeks now… We find ourselves in the heart of autumn.
Autumn brings about a lot of changes for some of us. The changing colours of falling leaves; central heating is turned on; it’s getting darker earlier; or some people finding themselves in new jobs; some that have started primary school/high school/college/university or bible school [yep, the latter is me!]; new transitions of saying goodbyes and saying hellos… Sometimes we don’t always know how to deal with transitions, but I shan’t go there, as I’ve blogged about that before.
But what I do want to blog about this time, is what’s going on in the land of iD, our youth group in the English side of the BCEC.

BCEC Retreat 2009

One of the things I love most about BCEC is being a part of Christ’s family here on earth. Being a part of this crazy and nutty but always loving and caring family-in-Christ that I believe God has most uniquely placed us in Birmingham for. As our church continues to grow (praise God for that!), and as I’ve seen personally from the days when the entire English congregation can actually all go to someone’s house for a bbq to now when we pretty much take over the entire Wing Wah Restaurant for lunch on Sundays, I strongly believe there is an increasing need for events like our annual BCEC English Congregation Church Retreat. Something like this will allow us as a whole congregation to meet with God and to meet with one another for a dedicated weekend of encouragement and support and also some fun as well.
