We will be closing at noon today (Christmas Eve) and re-opening on Thursday 2nd of January 2014 when we will have our first group sessions reading through the Bible in a year. If you have 'signed up' for this we look forward to seeing you then, if you haven't yet but would like to be a part of this please let us know via the contact page, telephone, Facebook, or come along to the shop this morning or on Thursday 2nd and find out more. We'd love to see you!

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers and friends a very Joyful and blessed Christmas and a peaceful and happy new year.

"They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And the baby, lying in the manger. After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. All who heard the shepherds' story were astonished, but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them." Luke 2:16-20

As we enjoy the Christmas season, we pray that we will all have the wonder and enthusiasm of the shepherds to tell everyone what God did on that first Christmas and to glorify and praise God for his great goodness to us all.

Keep on spreading his Word!

 
The Bible In One Year - Starting January 2014
Written by Lydia   
Wednesday, 11 December 2013 15:13

Are you considering reading the Bible in one year next year?

We are planning to start reading through the Bible in one year, daily at Life, beginning on our first day back in the new year.

We will be launching this on Thursday 2nd January 2014 at 12.30pm and again at 7.30pm, when we will fix the dates of other sessions. Please feel free to come along to one or the other.

We will be reading the New Living Translation 'God Sightings - The One Year Bible'. If you, like many of us, would like to read the Bible in one year but feel you need others to help keep you on track, we plan to read daily (Monday-Saturday during our regular devotional, reading and prayer times at Life) and are offering a free copy to the first 10 people to commit to joining us at least twice a month over the year. We will also be offering a lunchtime and evening 'group' to give you plenty of choices to meet with others and chat over what you've been reading and support each other.

We chose the NLT version because it is a modern, relatively simple  English translation and therefore good for new Christians, those who have been Christians for a long time or those who aren't sure yet.

"Once you've seen God at work through his Word, there's no turning back...

You're hooked. Your excited. Inspired. Open to the unexpected.

You can't wait to see what God will do next. Because - maybe for the first time - you see him alive and active in your world.

But until you see that with your own eyes, it's tough to have a vibrant faith. Believing in God can feel dry. Dusty. Grounded in principles rather than passion.

As you make your way through God Sightings: The One Year Bible, you'll explore portions of the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. You'll learn to experience God every day. You'll see the amazing ways God is expressing the truth found in His word in the world around you, in your own life." From 'God Sightings: The One Year Bible' Tyndale

If you want to join in with this please contact us at enquiries@life-wsm by Telephone 01934 418109 or via Facebook at Life Wsm so that we can reserve your free copy.

New Books At Life Today!
Written by Lydia

We have 3 great new books from Bible Reading Fellowship (BRF) at life aimed at those teaching children whether in primary school or at church.

 Teaching Narnia By Olivia Warburton is a cross-curricular classroom and assembly resource for those teaching RE to KS2. It includes background information on C.S. Lewis’s life, 15 lesson plans, drama workshop activities, assemblies and follow-up ideas for Christmas and Easter as well as plot summaries of each of the Narnia books.

Why Teach Narnia in RE?

“... While being presented as fantasy stories the books contain strong Christian themes exploring the nature of Christianity and God’s relationship with human beings in a parallel universe. .. the books work on different levels...Lewis includes characters from Greek and Roman mythology as well as traditional British and Irish fairy tales and even Father Christmas makes an appearance.

 They offer parallels with the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ, helping the children to learn about key Christian beliefs and to learn from them by tackling big questions such as: what is really real? How do we see the world? Who is in charge of the world? Is God really good? Does he exist at all? What happens after death? How do we know what is right and wrong?.”

 The stories also provide strong links to PHSE and Citizenship, Literacy, Art, Drama and Science.

Priced at just £6.99

 Christianity: Key Beliefs and Traditions By Cavan Wood seeks to inform and equip RE teachers of KS2 by looking at theological ideas such as creation and salvation as well as at the life of Jesus and the growth of the church. Over 30 topics are covered, each including background information, classroom activities and learning objectives. The emphasis is not just on the history of Christianity but on the Christian faith as it is lived now and on evaluating its key ideas, linking them to pupils’ experience and understanding.

Priced at £7.99

 Not Sunday Not School Bible Heroes! By Eleanor Zuercher. A Sunday or midweek resource for those working with 3-11 year olds contains 11 off-the-peg themed activity programmes and a 5 session holiday club based around the lives of Old and New Testament heroes, both well known and less familiar.

Each 2 hour programme offers material for a range of practical activities including storytelling, art and craft, drama, discussions, music, cookery and Bible teaching, plus ideas for an act of worship following a workshop session.

Price £9.99

If you mention this ad we'll give you 10% off any of these 3 books at the till!
