Division(s)

Maybe I just don’t have rosy questions in mind when I think of Bible studies. Want to know what I’d like to see? A Bible study on division(s)!

Shared Idea: Older Fatherhood

With a little regret, I’m going to share a writing idea I’ve had. I’d really like to tackle it myself. I’m just nowhere close to imagining a time I could do so! So, if you’re interested in a rarer format, single-person narrative delving into older fatherhood and a son’s sacrifice, here you go.

Conquest of Canaan

Maybe I’m on a kick, thinking up ideas for Old Testament Bible studies. Anyway, I think one should be done on the Conquest of Canaan.

Systematic Bible Studies

People have talked about four disciplines within theology: systematic, exegetic, historical, and practical. Exegesis is foundational as it draws “out” of Scripture while the other three are helpful by systematically discussing topics; recognizing worth in, and drawing upon, the historic church and theologians; and then focusing on proper application of God’s Word in pastoral care. Anyway, my dear husband had a stellar idea for systematic Bible studies.

Deathbed Scenes

It’s been a weekend of ideas for me and I’m happy to share. I’d be really interested in reading more deathbed scenes written by Lutherans. In particular, it struck me that unbelievers, or even irregular attenders, may have no idea how wrenching it can be for a believer to watch death approach a loved one.

Shared Ideas for Old Testament Bible Studies

I’ll admit that I’m married to a pastor and our Bible studies at church hinge on his personal research and due diligence. Still, he offered some great insight in yesterday’s class that got me thinking. I’ll offer a few suggestions but feel free to add your own for shared ideas for Old Testament Bible Studies.

Invisible Struggles

Another idea to share: this one on invisible struggles and theological considerations. Now, usually I’d sit on this one, because it has real appeal for me. Sadly, I’m just not writing. I need to focus on our kids—and the current lung plague sweeping through our house. People with invisible struggles are particularly likely to be overlooked and treated overly simply, even though the Church is particularly equipped to speak in love and understanding.

Verses for Religious Education

Another idea to share. Older educational practices would use poetry to help memorize things. You know, “In fourteen hundred ninety-two Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” There were verses for religious education, too, memorizing (and summarizing!) the books of the Bible and other content. Of course, Luther’s Small Catechism falls into that genre, too, in its beautiful German crafting. Still, why not put together a book of Lutheran texts and verses for religious education?

Repentance

Mondays seem to have lower readership, but I don’t want to sit on this idea. Writers, this is for you, but it’s also for CPH (and I’ll email this content to them directly!). Want to know a shared idea for a novel, writing contest, and maybe even series through CPH or other Lutheran publishing house? Repentance!

Friendship

Time to share an idea. When I was a young pup in the topic of vocation, I thought Luther missed an important one: friendship. Now “I can see clearly now the rain has gone,” and I have an idea to share. 🙂
