What it is
Bible journaling is not new, but it's latest, trendy and popular resurgence is only 2-3 years old. In effect bible journaling is became so popular that it ushered in the more secular adult coloring craze. So what is bible journaling? First and most importantly, it is about God's word. Secondly it is very personal; it is about your relationship with God and getting to know the path He has prepared for you! What bible journaling is not about, is how good an artist you are. Whatever you decide to do in the margins of your bible, write, draw, trace, use stamps or stickers, whatever you do, will be pleasing to God, because He knows you, loves you and is just happy that you've decided to spend more time getting to know Him.
Our meetings are a means of encouraging each other. Some of us will know the bible well, some of us will be new to it. Some of us will draw like angels, some will not draw at all. It doesn't matter one bit where you are on your journey. You are guaranteed to grow in your knowledge of both the bible and decorating its pages. Mostly, bible journaling will fill your hearts with joy and introduce you to the new, like minded friends, that God has put in your path!
What to Bring
What you will need is a journaling bible, (that's one with a margin on the outside of each page) though, if you are uncomfortable writing in your bible, a notebook will do just fine! If you cannot afford a bible, please contact me and with the help of Pastor Dave and his loyal helpers, we will see what we can do to help you get one. If you've never journaled before, please bring your journaling bible/notebook and coloring pencils to our first meeting. I'll have something to help get you started. If you have journaled before and you already have supplies, please bring them and enjoy your time with like minded people.
