”God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars.
~ Martin Luther
School is a place for education, and there are millions of people around the world who share another form of education, a deeply religious and spiritual connection with the Christian God. The foundation of their belief is the Bible and the stories it shares about right and wrong, the creation of the universe, and the mercy and forgiveness of their Lord Jesus Christ. Bring Your Bible To School Day encourages you these faithful to bring their books to school and share the love of the Lord with their classmates.
History of Bring Your Bible To School Day
Bring Your Bible To School Day was originally created by the wonderful people at www.bringyourbible.org with the intent that God’s love should be shared with everyone, and that those who are faithful to God would not be afraid to display their faith. Religion is an important part of the lives of billions of people all around the world, and sharing one’s faith with others is just one way of creating a more understanding, open, and diversified world.
The Bible, in whole or part, serves as the foundation for a number of the World’s major religions, religions that have shaped the path of world history both directly and indirectly. From the many Judaic Denominations, to the Muslim, Protestant, Catholic, and Mormon faiths and the denominations thereof, the word of God has plays an important role providing succor and surcease to those who find faith within its pages, as well as guidance through troubled times and comfort in an answer to what lies beyond the wall of death.
How to Celebrate Bring Your Bible To School
On Bring Your Bible To School Day we encourage you, regardless of faith, to bring the book that represents the foundation of your religion and share it with your classmates and school faculty in an air of understanding and communication. Open a dialectic, where one is not trying to sway the mind of the other (as in a debate) but rather each is sharing their thoughts, beliefs, and feelings on a subject with the intent that those listening will take knowledge and understanding of you from it. In turn, listen to the experiences of those who share other faiths and what they gain from it, you may find out you have more in common than you originally expected!
