This is a non-profit site that exists to share Bible studies that are developed for a group that met at my home every week. These studies went on for several years (2000-2004). At this point, I am attending a Wednesday night study elsewhere. Even teachers need to be refueled once in a while. Anyway, since there is quite a lot of material that has been accumulated over the years, I share it with anyone who may be interested.
If you came here looking for glitzy graphics and eye-popping images, sorry to disappoint you. If you are looking for material to use in your own pilgrimage through the Bible, or need something to use within a group Bible study setting, then you will be pleased.
Purpose of this site
Our study group tended to be rather amorphous from week to week, varying in numbers as we progress. The magic number of the class, the best size that seems to contribute to an active discussion, tends to be around eight people.
Our subjects are varied as I am led by the Lord. One thing is for certain, though, everyone derives no small amount of blessing from them. This includes yours truly, who has noticed a tremendous increase in my understanding of certain subjects by having to codify beliefs within a class format. For this, may God be forever praised.
Update: I am teaching a youth Sunday School every week at church and have been for several years. This is why there has not been new material added here for a while. Recently, I have started writing articles in a blog. The blog is not overtly Christian but I do occasionally write about Christian subjects. Some of these can be found linked under the Writings menu. The blog itself is at claforet.wordpress.com..
This website exists so that anyone and everyone may have access to my Bible study material. It is my prayer and my hope that this site will bring some to a living and active relationship with Christ, bring others to a more intense stage in their relationship with Him, and permit others to share with other believers anywhere.
