Welcoming the Sabbath  
The sun has only just set here, signaling the beginning of the Sabbath.

Tomorrow will be fun as I am both the Sabbath School Superintendent (leading out in the preliminaries), and I am teaching the Youth class. Speaking of which, I need to review the Cornerstone lesson, which focuses on John 1:1-18, and decide how to present the material. Most of the time, I do not even use Cornerstone and come up with my own lessons, but this quarter actually looks promising.

A postcard arrived in the mail today. The Southeastern California Conference Youth Ministries is hosting a youth leaders conference (Ignite) on Sabbath, January 24th. It might be worth attending, since I am the only youth teacher at church and technically am "youth leader" as well. >.>' I could definitely use the resources and fresh ideas. Must register January 15th, though, so I need to decide soon.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God." – John 1:1

That sounds like a good conference.

I haven't even picked up our new quarterly yet. I know it's on prophecy, but I am a badventist who always forgets about the lesson until Sabbath morning.

*lol* That's okay. This passed year I have hardly looked at the adult quarterly at all, but I plan to do better this year. I miss going through it on a sometimes daily basis. ^.^

Dan goes through it pretty much daily. I'm more an independent spirit. I enjoy the lessons during actual Sabbath school time, but I like to read other stuff at home. Which reminds me, I need to decide what book of the Bible I'd like to read through next.

I'm thinking OT history, like Samuel or Kings.

Hmm... I have thought about making a plan to read through the Bible, but I tend to be more task-oriented. I prefer studying with a purpose instead of casual reading, but maybe I can find a happy medium between the two this year.
