Ministry Tips - Chips

"So..." says one person... an awkwardly long silence follows.
"Yeah..." Another painfully long silence... that seems to last for eternity. Sensing problems I ask,
"Anyone for chips?" Leaning into my bag I pull out a pack of Doritos finest. Conversation flows.
There is something about eating together that really helps to vibe and conversation in a Bible Study group. For this reason I'm going to be bringing chips to my new Bible study group each week.

I can remember back in the early days when I had first become a Christian a bloke called Paul Chew ran my Bible study. What I remember most was, that even though he was newly married and had a low paying job, each week he brought along a box of Cheezels to share. This act week by week showed me he cared... cared enough about me and our study to invest a couple of bucks. It taught me to be generous and willing to share in a way that no study ever could. So I'll be bringing chips to my Bible study group.

And Paul Chew you are very definately a Christian I respect.

Yeah, it was a really good talk Mike. Thanks for serving us in that way.

I thought it was funny when you said that Job's daughters were "probably quite hot".

Of course they were hot.

I'm so spoiled - out hosts cook yummy Korean food every Bible study evening.

I don't remember the Cheezels. Maybe I came along after that. I do remember that back in those days there were several nights a week when I didn't get to have dinner. Bible study was one of them. So I guess if there were chips I probably gobbled them up!!
