Hello Everyone,  I thought we could have some “March Madness” on the Blog for a few days.  Not basketball of course :)  We’ll be studying a couple “Mad Men” from the Bible.  Today’s mad man is The Man from Gadara found in Mark 5.

Read the Bible passage and then answer the questions from the Lesson Sheet below.  Feel free to leave any comments about the passage here on the blog post or on our Facebook page.

Personally, I love this Bible passage.  It shows Christ’s compassion and love to the man beneath the demons.  He sees the soul whereas when we see people like this who are out of their mind in some way, regardless of whether it’s actual demons or just a little odd or different, sometimes we have the tendency to write them off.  I love how Jesus loves each of us regardless of how we come to Him.

Bible Passage:  Mark 5:1-20

Stop back in tomorrow.  We’ll be discussing good old King Nebuchadnezzar and his bout with madness and the next day about what keeps us sane.  Be sure to hang on to the downloads.  You can keep them for future ladies meetings.

Have a creative day,
Have a creative day!

    I am a mom of four amazing, and yet draining kids. For the time being I am a stay at home mom, and so incredibly thankful to my husband of 15 years, for his continued dedication to our COLORFUL family. LOL! I am also the President of my Women’s Ministries group in our small town church. I was very honored to accept this position, but truly had no idea of how to do the job. I have been doing Women’s Ministries now for 3 months, and honestly, I love it. With that being said, I just wanted to tell you how helpful your Blog has been to me. I am so grateful to Jesus for leading me to your page, when I really didn’t know where to start. You are awesome, and from one Christian mom to another, KUDOS! P.S. 2 of my 4 kids are screaming at this very moment. HA!

    Sincerely,
    Dodie Frisby

      Hi Dodie,
      Thanks for your sweet comments. It’s always a pleasure to meet those just starting out working with women’s ministry. So glad the Blog has been helpful to you. If you haven’t found them yet, there are several articles on women’s ministry on the main website which I like to send those new to the job to. They are located here. http://www.juliabettencourt.com/articles.html

      My children are partly grown. My oldest 28, my other two– one just turned 16 and one will turn 15 in July. My last two kids are 17 months apart so that was a real struggle when they were young but even now sometimes they still drain me :) Wouldn’t change it for anything though.

      Hope you will have a wonderful and blessed day!
