Virtual VBS Assignment:
We’re in Week Four of Five in our free online summer Bible study, Virtual VBS for GrownUp Girls: Holding on to Hope… When Life Is Hard. If you’re participating, here are your instructions for this week:
Reflect: Choose one of the verses or quotes above to journal on this week. If you need some questions to get you started, here are a few to consider:
- Why did you choose this particular piece?
- If you chose a quote, do you agree or disagree with the author? Have you experienced what they’re talking about — and if so, when? Would you put it differently?
- If you chose a Scripture, was it new to you or a familiar verse, with a history for you? What does it mean? How do you relate it to your past? Your present? Your future?
If you’re not big on writing out your thoughts, just think through them while you go for a drive or a walk or ask a friend over for coffee — preferrably one who’s a good listener :)
